Events, Training & Field Days

The WCBA holds regular events, field days and workshops around various aspects of beekeeping throughout the year. Our most recent events featured an information session on honey, frame assembly and preparation workshop and an auction day that included hive inspections.

As a member of WCBA, you will receive an email informing you of the events – well in advance – to afford you the chance to be part of the occasion. The cost for each event varies, however we typically have a reduced fee (to no entry fee) for WCBA members while non-members pay a premium for attending. The premium will be stipulated with each event advert. Also, the events rotate in terms of hosting locations so that we cover the different regions where our members reside – convenient and cost saving.

We encourage our members to raise topics of interest so that they can be incorporated into an event during the year. We rely on you for guidance in order for us to provide you with good skills, knowledge and interaction with various experts within the beekeeping industry. If you have any ideas that you’d like to put forward, please don’t hesitate to email [email protected] or put it up on our WhatsApp group.
