Unfortunately, we had to cancel our beekeeping classes for 2020 after only getting one class in. We should be able to schedule more in 2021, so we will post on our Facebook page when we have dates established.
If you’d like to learn about bees and are excited to start backyard beekeeping, this is the class for you. We concentrate a series of classes into a full-day class to make the most of your time and give you an in-depth look at becoming a beekeeper. You can walk into this class, knowing nothing about honeybees, and walk out prepared and excited about your new adventure.
Your class will be taught by an EAS Certified Master Beekeeper so you know you are getting great information, taught in a way that isn’t intimidating. Regardless of your age, whether you are male or female, or your beekeeping goals, we do our best to teach a reasonable approach to beekeeping that works best for you.
The class is lecture-based and interactive, so you will get a chance to open a real hive, weather permitting. We do not open hives during periods of rain, impending poor weather, or when temperatures are below 60°. If we won’t be able to open a hive during class, several other opportunities for opening a hive will be scheduled.
