The Beginners Classes. The EMBA runs an annual Beginners Class in the spring of each year (one evening per week from mid March through May). The classes cover the theoretical and practical basics of beekeeping and give a sound grounding for the new beekeeper. The classes are also a good place to meet other beginners and form mutual help friendships. Please check the EMBA Calendar on our Forum for dates, times and venues.
Once the spring beginners program has finished and the season gets in full flow we have a program of interesting visits during the summer months. Please check the EMBA Calendar on our Forum for dates, times and venues.
Note: If in doubt about weather please phone the secretary for confirmation on the day -
0131-663-3627. Please support the events, beekeepers put in a lot of effort for us so lets do our bit by going to them!
The EMBA has regular winter meetings from September through April and usually meets on the second Monday evening of the month at St James Church Hall, Goldenacre, 57B Inverleith Row near junction of Inverleith Row and Ferry Road, EH3 5PX. Speakers give talks or demonstrations on subjects of interest to beekeepers and attending these meetings is a good way of getting a feel for beekeeping and of meeting local beekeepers who tend to be a friendly crowd. Please check the EMBA Calendar on our Forum for dates, times and venues.
