This is a one-day course on bee friendly beekeeping using Warré's People's hive. The course tutor is David Heaf, the leading exponent of Warré's methods.
The 2013 course was so popular that we had to organise a second date. We are hoping to organise a repeat of this course in 2014. Ring the BfD office on the number below to provisionally register your name early for this course and we will contact you as soon as we can confirm a date.

Participants' comments from recent courses:
"Great to have a perspective on bees that matches my own attitude to the environment."
"Clear, consistent message with good balance of facts, philosophy and practical."
"Finally feeling that here was a beekeeping place where I belonged. The tutors, all four of you, were brilliant, I never for one moment felt my questions were foolish or unnecessary."
