U3A Sunshine Coast is conducting a trial where members who enrol in the above class can either attend the class in person or participate in the class via Zoom. This gives participants the flexibility of learning about beekeeping and becoming involved in any discussions from their own home if they have difficulty attending the class at the U3A Lecture Room. Each session will also be recorded so that members who have enrolled can view the class at a later time.
Members who enrol will be sent a link prior to each session which will allow them to join in the class. To find out more details about the course please go to the U3A website. Organic Beekeeping Course Code (21LEC214).
This class introduces the basics of beekeeping at home. It covers: the basic equipment, the parts of a hive, the types of hives, preventing disease, managing pests, harvesting honey, the jobs and life cycles of the bees, preventing swarming and catching a swarm.
This is a theoretical course and covers all the basic knowledge you need to know to be successful. The Tutor, Joe Smith, kept honey and native bees for over 5 years in Brisbane, before moving to the Sunshine Coast. Maintenance of a beehive would take probably less than one hour per month in Spring and Summer, and you may get 20kg of honey per month, once the hive is fully established.
