The beekeeping session last night was all about diseases and how to choose the best site for your hive-everyone has really enjoyed the course and learned a lot about bees. There are some follow up sessions as well as the Apiary workshops when spring finally arrives!

We have also been working on the trees out in the grounds which has generated turf which we have layered with torn up cardboard in the compost again. We have build some tiered baskets and made a planter from recycled wood for the demonstration back yard and completed our preparations for Easter Monday when we expect to have many visitors
