Talking Bees

Club meetings include talks and beekeeping demonstrations. The club holds apiary sessions during the summer months at our association apiary at the Off-shoots Permaculture Project in Towneley Park, Burnley and our Out Apiary at Gawthorpe Hall. The Association also attends local events promoting beekeeping and educating the public.

Our branch members come from all walks of life and all generations, with new members welcome. “Introduction to beekeeping” courses are run for beginners.
