Gormanston Summer School for Beekeepers 12 – 16 Aug incl.

 FIBKA Gormanston Beekeepers’ Summer School  runs Monday 12th August until Friday 16th August .
It is for Beginner, Intermediate and Senior Beekeepers or anyone wanting to learn more about beekeeping and to improve their knowledge of beekeeping.
It is a brilliant week with an array of speakers and demonstrations and there are lots of social events also. You will get talking to beekeepers from Ireland, England and further afield and everyone is willing to share their information There are plenty field demonstrations planned where you will need your beesuit.
You will find several suppliers of equipment there also.
You don’t have to go for the week. You can go for a day or two. The food is also good!
The draft programme is now on the FIBKA website at  https://irishbeekeeping.ie/beekeeping-summer-school-gormanston-2019/#drafts  . Have a look at the programme to see what is on offer. You don’t have to stay within any one category. You can pop into any lecture Room or Demonstration that suits you. You may have to register for some limited ones beforehand.
You could also enter the honey show and the draft guideline are there also. A visit to the Honey Show is interesting to see all the exhibits
It really is a great week and I strongly encourage you, if you can at all, to take at least one day there.
