Each day of this two-day course has four one-hour information sessions, hands-on segments, theory covering equipment, hive management, honey harvesting, diseases and legislation, and a Q&A session. Morning and afternoon teas provided; BYO lunch. Cost: $200 for Permaculture Melbourne members / $250 non-members. Location: Mitcham (eastern suburbs of Melbourne).
