|Email item||Print item||
Starting at the end of this month, a BeeAware project will be getting underway with Friends of the Earth Malta.
The NGO said that it will give people the opportunity to get involved in beekeeping and to train qualified volunteers to assist with Friends of the Earth Malta.
The introductory course is designed to give a general understanding on the role of bees as a vital part of the environment, as well as what someone needs to know if they are thinking about keeping bees, such as the apiary setup, equipment required etc.
FoE Malta said that the course will take place at the Gozo NGO’s Centre in Xewkija, with some theoretical sessions taking on site at selected apiaries.
The course starts with workshops taking place on Saturdays until the end of November. Interested persons can register online here.
This project has been funded with support from the Gozo Ministry, Fond Ghall-Ghaqdiet Volontarji and the EU.
