Event Details

Learn about the incredible world of the bee, how to care for bees and how to encourage the multiple benefits of pollination and honey production in your backyard. This workshop will introduce keeping European honeybees as a backyard hobby including types of hives, what bees need, and how to care for them. An opportunity to see a working hive is planned, weather permitting. 

Corwin Bell has been passionately working with bees for over 20 years. He practices a holistic approach in caring for bees that focuses on enhancing the bee’s immune system through attentive listening, right timing and sustainable methods. In the courses Corwin teaches, he reveals a connection between bees and humankind as symbolic of a broader interconnection between humans and the natural world. 

Corwin promotes a “backyard” hive method and philosophy which encourages and inspires interested and willing individuals to connect with bees through an altruistic Guardianship that goes beyond hobbyist beekeeping. Bell travels widely giving lectures and workshops to raise awareness of honeybee genetic biodiversity and to promote alternatives to conventional beekeeping practices.

This workshop is open to enrolled CU Boulder students only. Enrollment is limited.

Please arrive on time so we can get started and underway promptly. 

FREE. 

Brought to you by student fees and the CU Environmental Center
