Throughout the summer season, Harewood Learning Team offers visitors a variety of Beekeeping Taster Days and Demonstrations, some of which are free for all to enjoy!
The Harrogate and Ripon Beekeepers' Association have a working apiary here in the Walled Garden at Harewood where they run the Beekeeping Taster Days and demonstrations throughout the summer, helping people to find out more about bees and get some hands-on experience if they are thinking about keeping their own...
In June Harewood's Learning Team provides a series of Beekeeping Taster Day Workshops held in conjunction with the Harrogate & Ripon Beekeepers' Association. You can take your pick across a variety of dates and then get busy in your own garden!
It's the perfect opportunity to gain a wealth of knowledge from experienced beekeepers, including a opportunity to visit and observe a working apiary within the Grounds. You'll find out about the natural history of bees, hives and equipment, foraging, swarming, apiary sites, stings, diseases, hive products and processing.
Every Saturday you can join them in the Walled Garden, to learn about the bees, see beekeeping skills in action, ask questions and find out about planting for bees, honey and more... Check our What's On pages for details.
Our booking office is open between 10.00am and 5.00pm seven days a week and can be contacted on 0113 218 1000 Box Office Terms & Conditions.
