I was looking at attending a beekeeping course later in the year, and I saw a website advertising one in Cape Town in June. Being in the southern hemisphere, it is our winter, albeit a mild Mediterranean climate. We receive our rain in winter, and our climate is just a little warmer than San Francisco.
My question is this, would it we beneficial to attend this course? Would it not be detrimental to the bees? Also, if there’s no honey flow, would I be gaining the same amount of knowledge as one would when attending such an event in spring/summer?
