WBKA encourages any of its members interested in this topic to consider enrolling for the course, and will support those who do enrol by reimbursing 25% of their course fee after they complete it. Please note that the NDB Short Courses are aimed at those beekeepers with some experience of the craft, not beginners or novices.

WBKA Webinar – Colonsay’s Native Honey Bee Reserve – 11th November 2021

Colonsay’s Native Honey Bee Reserve – Ann Chilcott, Scottish Expert Beemaster

Join us for a webinar on Nov 11, 2021 at 7:30 PM GMT.

Register now!

Ann will speak about her visit to Andrew Abrahams’ native bee reserve and you will hear about beekeeping on a marginal island off the west coast of Scotland where conditions are challenging. You will also enjoy stunning scenery from the comfort of your armchairs and sofas.

Ann is a retired public health nurse with a diploma in nurse education. She has been keeping bees for 17 years in the Scottish Highlands and holds the Scottish Expert Beemaster certificate and an HNC in Countryside Management. Ann combines these skills in her self-appointed, mostly voluntary, role of honey bee health champion and beekeeping educator. She takes every opportunity to learn from other beekeepers and has travelled widely visiting beekeepers and giving presentations overseas. Her favourite part of beekeeping is engaging with children and, over the summer, many visit her apiary and observation hive: she is known locally as The Bee Lady.

Ann writes for various beekeeping magazines and her weekly blog on www.beelistener.co.uk is currently read in over 100 countries.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
