Event description

Description

If you have ever wondered about keeping bees or just wanted to learn about ways to get involved, join us for "Intro to Beekeeping". We will go over the costs, logistics and initial knowledge needed to start your own hives, as well as the basics of honey bee biology and behavior. The class will focus on urban beekeeping but most information will easily crossover for suburban or rural beekeeping as well.

This class is a brief overview and primer for our full Beginner's Beekeeping Course that begins in February 2018. A great way to put your toe in the water before committing to the full course.

This is the perfect gift for anyone interested in the environment, food, natural living, etc.

FAQs

Is there a minimum age requirements to attend?

No. Children are welcome as long as they do not disturb the other attendees. Please note that kids' ticket pricing is not available. All tickets are general admission.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is limited to street parking and can be challengin at times, however we chose a Saturday afternoon in part because the area is less congested. We recommend using public transportation.

What can I bring into the event?

You're welcome to bring a note book and writing utensil, however we will provide an informational handout that covers the bullet points we cover in class.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can always drop us a line at hello@astorapiaries.com with any questions. We'd love to talk with you.

What's the refund policy?

Refunds are not available for this class. Please look over the description and contact us with any questions or concerns before your purchase your ticket. Don't take too long though, we expect this class to sell out.
