Introduction to Backyard Beekeeping
Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PDT)
Have you been thinking about raising bees in your backyard? Honey bees are an asset to the backyard gardener because they pollinate fruit trees, berries, vegetables and other garden plants. And of course, their honey is a delicious valuable product you can harvest at home and share with friends and family.
This workshop will walk you through the basics of getting started in backyard beekeeping. We will go over the tools of the trade, the fundamentals of beekeeping, including parts of the hive, best practices of the apiary as well as seasonal management with personal instruction from The Tattooed Beekeeper at our Tattooed Urban Homestead Backyard Apiary.
