GET TO KNOW ME
Welcome to the wonderful world of beekeeping.
My journey in beekeeping began through another beekeeper and friend. After listening to many beekeeping stories, I thought “I can do that!”
So what did I do? I watched videos about catching bee swarms. The video made it look easy. Off I went to catch a bee swarm. After finding a swarm and rehousing them in a second-hand beehive in the backyard of our suburban home, my beekeeping ‘apprenticeship’ began.
My knowledge and experiences built up slowly through successes and failures. I joined the Bee Society of South Australia and got some excellent advice and hands on training.
I have now completed the Certificate III in Beekeeping through Tocal College in NSW.
There is always something to learn in beekeeping. No two beehives are the same and no two seasons are the same!
Enjoy the beekeeping journey.
