Teaching materials for associations

General Husbandry- self serve course materials

General Husbandry- self serve course materials

The course contains materials which could be used as the basis of a two day General Husbandry Course. These are free for you to use and adapt.

Of course, a set of slides will not do the teaching- you will need knowledgable beekeepers to use these materials. All these slides can be adapted and personalised with your own photos, videos and anecdotes and we hope they will be the basis for many enjoyable GH courses.

For insights into how other associations have used these materials (and/or other materials) please look at the other courses available to associations. Here you will see where associations have done a range of small group workshops (Warks), or a three day version spread across the summer to include queen rearing (BBKA/Lincs).
