It is the aim of the Ulster Beekeepers Association, in conjunction with the local associations, to further the knowledge and expertise of all beekeepers. This applies to those just taking up beekeeping and also to those who have been doing it many years.
There are a number of ways the UBKA tries to meet this aim:
- Courses for different levels run each year with examinations and practical assessments
- Our annual conference features speakers and workshops dealing with many issues in beekeeping
- Bee Health workshops across the province to increase the level of awareness
- News flashes and information sheets sent out to local associations on issues that may affect local beekeepers
So if you are just starting out or have been a beekeeper for many years the UBKA are here to help.
