Founded in 1995, the Roseland Beekeeping Group is a member group of Cornwall Beekeepers Association, which is in turn part of the British Beekeepers Association. Our aim is to promote the craft of beekeeping by encouraging, educating and supporting both new and existing beekeepers, and those interested in learning more about honeybees.
We are an inclusive, lively and diverse group of individuals all linked together by beekeeping. As a result we are comprised of new, novice and more experienced members that help each other by working together. We are very proud of the help we are able to offer to anyone thinking of taking up beekeeping. One of our longstanding members runs the theory courses organised by Truro College and we have a Group apiary (based at the Lost Gardens of Heligan) where we offer training in practical skills for new beekeepers. Additionally, we have a mentoring system in place to offer advice and hands-on assistance to anyone who requires it in their first few years (and beyond!) of beekeeping.
