Beekeeping Classes

Beginner Beekeeping (Tuesday and Thursday nights/Saturday morning) is a five week course that takes absolute beginners from setting up a new hive, managing it throughout the season, getting ready for winter, and planning for the following spring. The class has a special focus on urban, suburban, and chemical-free beekeeping.

Sophomore Beekeeping (Wednesday night) is a five week course intended for novice beekeepers with at least one season with a hive of their own. Expanding on the beginner’s curriculum, the focus of the course is to move toward a sustainable apairy with emphasis on swarm prevention, nucleus colony and honey production, and a closer look at disease control.
