Backyard beekeeping is the latest trend but an unmanaged hive doesn't thrive. Don't get overwhelmed by all the conflicting info out there - learn with us with our successful step by step program guiding the way to a fun and rewarding hobby.   


  • what you need & what you dont,
  • how to start & hive placement,
  • intro to seasonal management,
  • the legal requirements,
  • pests & diseases, and
  • so much more

This is entry into our entire BeeSmart program & community with Step 1.  It isn't a taster glossing over bees and beekeeping but will give you the knowledge & basic fundamentals to get you going with your own colony with more confidence.

A demonstration of bee husbandry with tips & tricks at different times throughout the season. You will learn to read the frames and problem solve to give them the best care they deserve.  No bees on board in this session.  The hands on sessions are offered after the completion of Step 1.

Springtime is the best time to start your hobby so our time frames are perfect to plan, setup and be ready to get your bees.

Step 1 - Beekeeping for Beginners is a pre-requisite to be invited to our entire program  where we drill down & learn how to properly manage & care for your bees from beginner to advanced techniques.  Behind the scenes support is the bonus for joining our group too.

Hands on field days (Step 2) are our favorite classes to ensure you gain the necessary experience to safely handle your colony.  They begin in Springtime through to Summer and our current students get an exclusive invitation.

Additional offerings include and are not limited to honey harvesting, winter packdown and heaps more that the general public dont see.  Exclusivity only to our BeeSmart VIV Community after completing Step 1 - Beekeeping for Beginners!

You can also buy your first Bee Colony from us too!  This is EXCLUSIVE to our BeeSmart Beekeeping Community. Available in Springtime.

We certainly are here to help hold your hand and guide you to ensure you have the most positive and rewarding experience with your own backyard bees.

The entire BeeSmart Backyard Beekeeping program will take you through the journey in understanding the Honeybee colony so you and your family can reap the rewards of their tireless pollination & delicious backyard raw honey. Mmmmm its simply the best!
