I am seeking expressions of interest for a new workshop about building your own top bar bee hive. I have been building these hives for 5 years and my design and process have evolved over that time. I've also seen many people build their own and make serious mistakes that could be avoided, saving time and money. Let me know if this is something that could help you.
