Been thinking about keeping bees for years? Don’t know where to start?
Attend our in-person beekeeping 101 class so that we can teach you the basics of beekeeping! The class will be held in a large indoor space and limited to eight (8) registered students per class. COVID-19 precautions per local, state, and federal guidelines will be strictly adhered to by our attendees and us. All students will be subject to a verbal screening and temperature check at the entrance. All students not related to or residing in the same household will be seated in a socially-distanced manner.
Class is subject to cancellation due to current COVID-19 conditions at the time of the class. Class is subject to cancellation if the gathering is deemed in violation of local, state, or federal orders enacted after your class registration is complete and encompassing the class date. We will refund the costs of the class if it is canceled for these reasons. Due to limited seating, we will not accept cancelations by students for refunds within 7 days of their class.
This beginner beekeeping class will focus primarily on four topics to help get you started and manage your bees:
- What is a honey bee? The Queen, the Worker, and the Drone.
- Beekeeping Equipment & How to use it during an inspection
- Deciding between a 3 lb Package of Bees and a Nucleus Hive (NUC)
- Your First Year in Your Apiary
Class is a single Saturday session from 9:00 am until 12:30 pm on the scheduled date. We will provide the class location and any additional COVID-19 considerations a week before your scheduled class date.
