This is a nine-hour course, consisting of three consecutive Thursday night sessions. Each class is held from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Get started in the fascinating world of beekeeping. This workshop will address everything you need to practice the art of beekeeping. Topics include: why bees are beneficial, basic bee biology and behavior, beekeeping equipment, selecting a site and starting a bee colony, managing honeybees throughout the year, extracting honey, preparing your hives for winter, and managing surviving colonies the following year. Participants will receive handouts of all topics covered including a list of resources, and will be able to see beekeeping equipment, and catalogs.
