Come along to the Broadford on hotel on Friday the 1st of March to learn all about keeping honeybees! Its too cold to have any practical demonstrations, but Lorraine Johnston, Bee Advisory Officer for SRUC Veterinary Services, will talk you through everything you need to know if you are thinking of starting up or have recently started. You will learn about the lifecycle of the honey bee, how they pollinate flowers and crops, and how to keep healthy honey bees.
