Thanks very much again to Sharon Bassey of the London Beekeepers Association (LBKA) who’s been in touch with us on a regular basis and for recently letting us know that the capital growth fund is releasing more grants of up to £750 for community food growing projects, see http://www.capitalgrowth.org for more info.
The LBKA will be running their “Introduction to beekeeping” two day weekend course at St Paul’s Church Hall in SW4 in a couple of months time and after that they run a mentoring scheme where you are assigned to a local beekeeper for a year before going it alone. A great organisation running excellent and informative courses. The cost of the forthcoming one is at the great price of £150 which is not bad at all!
