Collection: Courses

We work closely with our partners in Ethiopia, Ghana, Uganda and Zimbabwe to offer training on beekeeping and hive making to people living in poverty. While that is our core focus, we do also offer a range of unique, award winning courses in the UK.

We have been running our flagship Sustainable Beekeeping Course at Ragman’s Lane Farm in Gloucestershire since 2008. In 2022 we'll be also taking it for the first time to Wakelyns Agroforestry Hub, Suffolk - where we will also run a Beekeeping Taster day.

We partner with leading expert Chris Park to offer the best Skep Making and Beekeeping Courses, as well as artisanal Mead Making Courses.

We are now delivering our Strengthening Livelihoods through Beekeeping Course online and on-demand. The course is designed to support groups which are aiming to establish beekeeping as a rewarding and remunerating activity for people living in poverty anywhere in the world. The course is delivered over 4 sessions lasting 1.5 hours each and tailored to the background, goals and operating context of your group. Click here for more information.
