Description

Updated for 2018! Now in our twelfth year, this twelve-hour course will teach you everything you need to know to safely start and maintain a beehive in any environment, particularly an urban one. By the end of the course, though you won’t be a seasoned expert, you will know enough to get started and to enjoy a fulfilling season as a bona fide beekeer.


AMONG THE THINGS THIS COURSE WILL COVER:

  • basic bee biology
  • construction of a bee hive
  • safe hive placement
  • general maintenance
  • dealing with neighbors and landlords
  • troubleshooting in the hive
  • processes and life cycle within the colony
  • diseases and treatments

Learn how to invigorate your vegetables and fortify your flowers (and those of the neighborhood) while contributing to the environment and ensuring yourself as much as 100 lbs of pure raw honey per year per hive. This course teaches everything you need to know to start or continue your fascinating love story with the bees. We will address all of the beekeeping basics as well as the unique challenges and benefits to keeping bees in an urban environment. Learn about this fulfilling and rewarding hobby.
