My wife and I are trying to get some close-up experience with bees whilst waiting to join the local Association and start courses next year, etc.

If you don't mind showing off your bees to some keen beekeeping wannabees (!?) who can bring cake with them :) your help would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.

James,

Sure you can. Then you can tell us what 'e-mail cake' tastes like!

Thanks. My wife and I are both booked up on your course. Looking forward to it (and seeing the infamous Beehaus up close!).

Oh poop, the Omlet site seems to be a bit broken at taking bookings. Is there anyway to book direct with you as I'd like to tag along as well so I can see if this beekeeping is to my taste too?

Thanks,

Pete
