Updated for 2018! Now in our twelfth year, this comprehensive 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 beekeeper. This is an intensive, one full day course, taught in an advanced smart classroom, by seasoned and experienced instructors.

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.
