Honey Bee

KSRC is the Kent Science Resource Centre, near Sittingbourne – a wonderful facility where beekeepers from all over Kent will be able to improve their knowledge of beekeeping. There is the online course booking “shop”, for KSRC-based beekeeping courses.

The courses are targeted at those who wish to improve their skills and so the courses are intended for beekeepers with at least 2 seasons’ experience of managing bees, and/or those who have acquired at least the BBKA basic certificate in beekeeping. Beginner beekeepers are directed to their local associations, where they will find lots of support for taking the first steps in beekeeping.
