Introduction to Backyard Beekeeping with Adam Kennedy
In this one day workshop, students will gain an understanding of:

We will also open a few different hives weather permitting.
We will taste some different types honey as well as sampling some fresh virgin honeycomb and mead.
Adam is a Permaculture educator, fermenter and beekeeper who lives in the Upper Mountains. He caught his first swarm in 2013 and was hooked...the hives kept on multiplying along with Adams’ deep interest for the magic world of bees. He has been incredibly blessed to be working and learning from natural beekeeper Tim Malfroy in his apiaries in the Hawkesbury and Blue Mountains for the past five years.
