The Association runs a series of lectures aimed at new or would-be beekeepers (but of interest to everybody) in early spring.

In season, volunteers work at the Crathes apiary on Sundays between 10:00 am and 12:00 am.  Please always contact Naomi Adams, the Crathes apiary manager, before visiting the apiary.
