Event Details

Are you a gardener interested in boosting the bounty that your veggie plants provide? Are you a nature lover who finds the prospect of your own backyard honey appealing? Consider becoming a beekeeper!

Join ex-urban beekeeper and current farmer at Seven Arrows East Meg Paska for a 3 session, 8 hour course on the basics of treatment-free beekeeping (taking place on three consecutive tuesdays, starting February the 26th and ending on Tuesday, March 12th). Learn about types of hives, the hierarchy of the colony, honeybee behavior and genetics, seasonal maintenance, pests and diseases, honey harvesting and more! Students will leave the class with the foundation to start a hive or two this spring!

Class will include visual presentations, videos and handouts. This class does not include a live inspection demo, though there will be one scheduled closer to the date. Students will be invited to participate.

Refreshments will be provided but students should bring a snack if they get hungry. Note taking is recommended so bring a pen and pad!

Bees will be available for purchase to those interested in getting started. Please contact us for more information.

The Homestead at Seven Arrows East

Former Brooklyn urban farmer Meg Paska has taken what she learned about intensive urban growing and applied it to small acreage in Monmouth County, NJ. Working alongside Seven Arrows East, a year-round yoga retreat, The Homestead functions as a small, diversified CSA farm and learning place. Farming workshops also take place year-round.
