very warm and friendly with time to answer everyone's questions - Anne,

the course began with coffee and a brief time to get to know each other followed by an interesting presentation which covered a host of helpful facts and advice. Fiona showed parts of a hive. she was very good at telling us her way of doing things but also explained methods and techniques used by others. after a tasty homemade light lunch we were given bee suits and we spent time at the hives before or departure. I was a little surprised, however, that she didn't know much about the omlet beehaus.
