Broad, who runs Saltway Honey with his wife Susan Broad from Bromsgrove, will answer all the questions a prospective bee-keeper might have from costs, time commitments and suitable hive locations to potential problems.
The three hour course includes two hours with the Webbs bee hives in the garden with protective bee suits provided. The third hour will be an indoor session outlining the next steps including equipment, local training courses, recommended reading and answering questions.
The Bee-Keeping Taster Course will run on a choice of dates: Sundays – 19 April, 17 May, 14 June, 12 July, 9 August, 20 September from 10.30am – 1.30pm. The 3 hour course costs £25 per person.
Chairman Ed Webb said, "There is a growing interest in keeping bees and the sessions were very popular last year. Chris Broad is an expert in the field and will pass on his enthusiasm and love for bee-keeping as well as his knowledge. It will give people a great insight into whether this is a hobby for them."
