Bees, Hives and Beekeeping School

At Greenwood Farm, our passion is bees and we take them seriously, and it shows.  We put care, detail and attention into each and every hive, and its all very Zen.

We're all about the bees, not commercial enterprise, after all, theyre our family.

Our bees are bred to be super gentle and our practices are very relaxed. Perfect for Beginners!

We take time to approach each hive with love in our hearts and treat them like the hard, earnest workers and Queen's they are.

Our biosecurity is paramount and our methods are 100% natural.  No chemicals, nasties, and our honey is void of any heat treatment or additives of any kind.  Its bottled in glass, the same day its gently extracted off the frame and the frames replaced back in the hives to give the girls a head start...how very Zen!

We are registered with Australian authorities and regularly lecture around the Gold Coast and Brisbane to both beginners and advanced beekeepers.

We just love teaching Beekeeping. Our 3 different classes are held regularly over the warmer months so you can learn the ins and outs of keeping your very own bees for pollination of your crops, flower garden, a want to give back to the environment, or you can get back to basics and harvest your very own delicious honey.

Don't have equipment or dont know where to start?  

No Dramas!  We supply all the safety equipment, hives, bees and protective clothing you'll need. 

 

Our detailed theoretical and practical Bee Basics class covers the Bee Life Cycle, Hive Set Up, Pests and Diseases and much, much more. 

You definitely get to play with Bees and printed booklets and E handouts are given during and after your class so you can keep learning from home. 

We also provide a list of necessary equipment from our preferred suppliers you'll need to get started and this make the process much easier.  

Our class sizes are kept small with a maximum number of 6 students.  This way, you get individual learning and a chance to mix with other beginners and share information.  

There are two parts to the class, Theoretical and Practical, you absolutely get to play with bees during both classes and get to see and manage the hives and frames filled with bees........  you may even get to see the Queen!
