Talking Bees

Club monthly meetings include talks, 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. 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 especially welcome. “Introduction to beekeeping” courses are run throughout the year for beginners.
