Winter 2021

Beginner Welcome to the fascinating hobby of beekeeping! Get started or get a refresher in the Beginner class, covering everything from honey bee biology and behavior to how to acquire your first bees and where to place your hive. We’ll discuss equipment and how to conduct inspections as well as seasonal management of your colonies and being a good neighbor. This class will also cover the benefits and importance of keeping bees and the culture of beekeeping.

Intermediate Those who have already taken the Beginner level and or have at least one year of beekeeping experience should take the Intermediate class, which will take you through managing for a honey harvest, processing the honey, beeswax produced, and possibly expanding your apiary. Assignments include reading, listening to podcasts and watching videos.
