Did you know that some bees are now on the endangered list? This is your opportunity to do something about it!
Beekeeping is a great hobby and learning about the working lives of bees can deepen your appreciation of the wonder of nature; it is an activity you can get involved in whether you are young or old.
What Will You Learn?
Bees are intricately linked to our eco-system. Doing what we can to ensure their survival is not only a good, nature-friendly practice, but it’s a practical way to sustain our planet. So how do we help strengthen the bee population? Well, there is one particularly sound way to do this – beekeeping. The Natural Beekeeping Diploma Course aims to introduce you to the practical applications of beekeeping, focusing on how to do this in the most environmentally-responsible and bee-friendly way possible. From the course, you’ll gain an understanding of how to cultivate bee colonies that can thrive in and support the natural world.
The Natural Beekeeping Diploma Course begins by answering the question, ‘Why keep bees?’. From this, you’ll learn of the global and general reasons why bees are a necessity for our world and our lives – not just our habitats and food sources, but also our economy.
Learn how conventional and natural beekeeping differ and how (conventional) beekeeping came about. You’ll discover how the natural beekeeper puts the interests of the bee first, with honey-taking being secondary, while still maintaining bee colonies within hives.
For bees, the good of the colony comes before the individual. You’ll study bee society, looking at the bees’ duties, life cycles, reliance on one another, and various castes, looking at each of their purposes, behaviours and differing anatomies.
Why do bees make honey? How do they do it? The Natural Beekeeping Diploma Course answers these questions as you consider bees as gifted engineers and how they are capable of creating an incredibly efficient structure in which to hold their food, young, and themselves.
With all the knowledge you will gain from the course, you will no doubt want to put this to use. You’ll be guided through the essential equipment you’ll need to start beekeeping. You’ll learn about the different types of hive and the various types of equipment that can help you in your role as a beekeeper.
With your hive set up and all the necessary equipment ready, it’s time to move your new residents in, but how do you go about getting your bees? The Natural Beekeeping Diploma Course walks you through the different ways you can do this, with an emphasis on catching a swarm. It then guides you through the duties involved in caring for your colony and hive. This includes ensuring adequate food supplies, protecting against pests, and advice for maintaining and repairing your hive.
Honey! There is none more delicious than that from your own hive. The course will take you step-by-step through the harvesting process. From the equipment you’ll need, the best time to harvest, and the actual process itself.
What can you do with all this lovely honey you’ve harvested? Plenty! You will be given plenty of examples and recipes to follow. You’ll look at how it is used in beauty treatments, medicinal ointments, and food stuffs. You’ll also explore the uses for beeswax with recipes included for lip balm, candles and furniture wax.
