Introduction to Basic Beekeeping – 2 Day Workshop – 9th – 10th December 2021
Fiji Beekeeping Info
During the past few years, more than half the apiaries in Fiji that became infected with AFB only lost one or two hives because it was diagnosed early and the hives were destroyed. However, some apiaries lost five or more hives, a few more than 10, and one apiary lost 25(!) hives. Most were preventable losses.
Fiji Beekeepers Association is looking for skilled beekeepers who are willing to mentor less experienced beekeepers for a one-year period beginning in January. Mentors will work side-by-side with their trainee(s) and teach them essential beekeeping skills. Teaching experience is not required. FBA is also looking for beginning beekeepers who are interested in receiving beekeeping mentoring.
Beekeeping can be a fascinating hobby, a profitable sideline, or a full-time occupation. You may want to keep bees for the delicious fresh honey they produce, for the benefits of their valuable services as pollinators, or perhaps simply for the enjoyment of learning more about one of nature’s most interesting insects.
