What our students say
Had the pleasure of attending Marianne & Matthew's beekeeping workshop. The hands on portion gave me the confidence and knowledge I need to inspect my own hive. Thanks for introducing me to a very fascinating hobby.
Both Matt and Marianne are friendly, knowledgeable, kind andvery patient. They welcome questions and never rush you. We all learnt a lot about bees
and how honey is actually made. Great time. Highly recommend for all ages
