Chalets de Charme – Beekeeping Beginners Gold Residential
Come and join our very popular Beginners Beekeeping Course in lovely rural Dorset.
This DofE Gold residential runs for 4 nights and 5 days and as we are an Approved Activity Provider it meets all the requirements for the residential component of your Gold Award.
Our approach is very Bee centred and holistic, you’ll find handling the bees surprisingly calming and mindful. Safety suits will be provided so you don’t need to worry about being stung.
We are on the Jurassic coast so we have scheduled some free time during your stay to enjoy the beautiful beaches that line this area of outstanding natural beauty.
Accommodation is provided as well as all food and drinks.
You’ll be learning all about the Beekeeping year, colony composition and organisation, the effects of habitat loss, and what you can do to save the bees!
We hope you’ll feel confident at the end of the course to one day host your own colony.
