We hold beekeeping classes in January/February and May every year.
Why Winter? Because it's the perfect time to prepare for the coming beekeeping season. Our Winter classes last all day and give a beginning beekeeper the information needed to start up in the spring.
Classes in May and June are hands on classes at our apiary for beginning beekeepers. If you have a hive now or just want some more experience before you take the plunge, this class might be good for you.
We highly recommend that class participants read a beekeeping book before they come to the class in order to have some familiarity with beekeeping terms and honeybees.
May and June classes are hands on at our apiary on the roof of Christy Webber Landscapes. Class will run from approximately 10 AM to 3 PM and will include opening and inspecting a beehive. Lunch is potluck. Dates are May 11. May 25, June 8 and June 29.
If you prefer to pay by check, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The book we recommend for our classes - Honeybees and Beekeeping, A Year in the life of an Apiary by Keith Delaplane is available below. The book costs $20.00 plus $3.00 shipping and handling.
