This exclusive online course will see you learn all about natural beekeeping, under the guidance and tutelage of Philip Chandler, “The Barefoot Beekeeper”! It’s a perfect and insightful way to get introduced to more organic methods and traditions of keeping honey bees. And whilst the more traditional methods of beekeeping do require a lot of time and investment, the rewards they return are beneficial in so many different ways, as Philip himself discovered when he first started beekeeping, realising that more intensive modern techniques weren’t for him - or indeed, for the natural environment in which they existed. By returning to more sustainable, organic methods, those who are keen gardeners with an eye on becoming apiarists will come to better understand the mutual benefits of keeping bee colonies by only harvesting when there is a surplus - because the bees need the honey too, so as to be able to continue to pollinate plants. Having a good hive is one crucial element of the exercise, which is why Philip uses Kenyan-style horizontal “top bar” beehives. They’re much lighter than the more typical hives we immediately think of, as well as being far less invasive on the bees, and if you’re quite dexterous then they’re fairly easy to put together as well. Your tutorials will be delivered to you over a total of four online sessions. Amongst the topics you’ll be covering will be the role of bees in the natural world, their life cycle, and where both they and flowers thrive best. In your final session, you’ll learn about how to best attract bees to your hive. And given that they’ll have a safe, chemical free home to get settled into, this should hopefully be no trouble at all! So if you’re buzzing to get started in natural beekeeping with The Barefoot Beekeeper, this is the course for you!
