Co będziecie robić

Come and meet the Bees! As an enthusiastic bee keeper I'll welcome you to my Apairy in the beautiful Dorset countryside a short walk from the sea. This is the perfect experience if you're thinking of becoming a beekeeper, or just have an interest. I have been introducing friends to the Bees and already offer beekeeping experiences to young people taking their Duke of Edinburgh award. I thought I should open up the experience to everyone! We will start the experience in our beautiful country garden with a refreshing drink, and I will share my practical experience with you. We will spend time at the actual hives in the Apairy, (bee suits are provided) and weather permitting we will get hands on with the Bees. I would love to inspire you to keep your own colonies and can offer advice on how to proceed. We really recommend enrolling on a course as there is so much to learn, but this taster session will get you hooked and I’m happy to share my own experiences with you.
Other things to note
You’ll be wearing a beesuit and it is very unlikely that you will be stung, however If you suffer from bad reactions to stings we would not recommend this experience.

I have lived alongside bees for 15 years, mainly in France, where my neighbour kept his colonies. Upon returning to the UK I joined a local bee keeping group and now have 6 colonies. I love to see how bees live in different hives, so we’ve a collection of different designs. Bees are just amazing, and being able to work alongside and learn from them is an absolute privilege and very humbling.

Gdzie będziecie

Our thatched cottage in Dorset is very peaceful and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Our Apiary is in the ancient apple orchard, full of wildlife and a haven for wild flowers, ideal for the Bees :) We will spend sometime in our beautiful garden, and you can enjoy a short stroll to the beach afterwards to reflect on the day you have spent with the bees.

A perfect introduction to bee keeping. Helen has a wonderful, natural approach to bee keeping. She is very experienced, knowledgeable and made sure we always felt comfortable at every stage. We were also lucky enough to sit out in Helen’s beautiful garden and enjoy a delicious lunch at the end of our morning.

What a wonderful experience. I already had some knowledge of the theory from textbooks and internet resources but this was a perfect introduction to the more practical side. Clear instructions on everyday items to bring with you. Helen is clearly experienced and has a wonderful holistic view to beekeeping which I hope to take forward. The event passed all too quickly. Very tasty lunch. Highly recommended

We were already buzzing for the experience but Helen really is the bees-knees and has a wealth of fascinating knowledge and is clearly very passionate. Helen is a great host and really devotes the time to sharing her passion with you in beautiful surroundings. We both came away feeling incredibly inspired.

We had a very enjoyable morning with Helen and the bees. Helen is so knowledgeable and taught us so much about these fascinating creatures, taking time to answer our questions. She had everything in place to make us safe and luckily the rain held off long enough so that we could see the bees up close. Lunch afterwards in the delightful cottage garden was delicious. Definitely a highlight of our week in Dorset!
