2 Day Log Hive Making with Boomtreebees – Saturday & Sunday March 12th & 13th – 10am – 4:30pm

Participants are encouraged to book in pairs as 2 people work on the 1 log hive that they’ll be bringing home.

A two day course where you will be making your own tree conservation log hive for honey bees, a hive which mimics the bees’ natural abode. Bees in the wild prefer to live in hollow tree limbs 4 to 6 metres above the ground and we design our log hives to mimic this habitat as closely as possible. During the 2 days you will learn about the natural life of honeybees, choosing a suitable location for your log hive and much more. 

Material Cost: €40 (per 2 people on a log)
