Honeybees and native bees perform about 80% of all pollination. Much of the food on your table is available thanks to pollination, but bee populations are declining. There are many things we can do to help native bees survive but raising honey bees is also a rewarding activity that will invigorate your vegetables and fortify flowers and comes with a bonus of honey for the beekeeper. Our beekeeping class will help you get started in the fascinating world of beekeeping and introduce you to the basic tools and knowledge needed to keep honeybees responsibly and productively. Whether you are an experienced beekeeper, a new beekeeper, or about to start your own backyard or neighborhood hive, this class will walk you through the basic knowledge needed to start and maintain hives.
Instructor: JoAnn Sabin. This class meets Thursdays from 6pm to 9pm, for 5 weeks.
