Applications closed for 2018

Our hunt for this year’s intake of 100 new beekeepers is now complete. We’ve been blown away by your applications – thanks to everyone who has shown interest in joining our Pollenation community. We’ll be sharing news on our class of 2018 soon, but even if you weren’t one of the lucky ones you still have plenty of opportunities to make a big difference to your local bee populations.

If you’d really like to take up the craft why not find your local beekeeping association and sign up to their beginners course?

You can find out more about how to start beekeeping and how to find a local group here.

Of course, you don’t have to manage a hive to help bees and pollinators of all kinds. Britain’s insect life needs our help; you can find some ideas to get you started here

We hope you’ll apply to join us next year; in the meantime do keep an eye on our Facebook page to see how our newest recruits are getting on.
