English Introduction course – Beginning 2017
The next English introduction course “Buzzing Bees“ will be on Tuesdays: 21 & 28 February and 7 March 2017 from 19:oo to 21:00h at Lab111 in Amsterdam.
Intro Course ?
For 3 evenings we will submerge you in the wondrous world of the bees and other pollinators for about two hours. With text, image and video, but also by feeling, smelling and tasting wax, honey or propolis. In combination with the most important information and interesting stories, presented by our experienced city beekeeper.
During the 3 evening course you will learn everything there is to know about (city-) bees and beekeeping. The course focuses on (honey)bees but you will also learn about solitary bees, bumblebees, wasps and how they relate to bees and our (city) environment. We will take a look at the bees’ present situation, what is it we hear in the news about the bees dying/colony collapse disorder? What is the value of bees today and what can we best do or not do to help them? What role do bees play and what products/medicines do they produce? All questions you will find answers to. And you will learn a lot more. We look into the bees living environment, how they evolve throughout the year, how they live, what they eat, what beekeeping is and the different ways of beekeeping. What types of beehives can be used and tools are needed. After the course you will have a complete overview of the bees’ world and can decide for yourself if and what you want to do more. If you do want to become a natural city beekeeper, then you can participate in the Practical beekeeping training for beginners that starts a few weeks later. Because we do require everybody that wants to follow the practical training and is not a beekeeper yet to first take the introduction course to have enough theoretical background.
