Organic beekeeping 101 - a workshop for the bee-curious!
THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT. PLEASE EMAIL THEBENEVOLENTBEE@GMAIL.COM IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE PLACED ON THE WAITING LIST. WE WISH WE HAD MORE SPACE!!
This spring, enjoy honey, beeswax, pollen and the miracle of bees right in your backyard. Urban yards (and even rooftops) are often excellent locations for hives. Aside from the fact that a healthy hive can produce several gallons of delicious, healthful honey every year, working with bees is tremendously enjoyable (many describe it as Zen-like), especially when shared with family and friends.
In this one-session intensive beekeeping workshop, you will learn what it takes to keep a busy, productive hive of bees happy! Learn where to get your bees, how to set up and maintain the hive, and what types of activities and time commitment are required throughout the year.
This is a beginner's workshop, so no previous knowledge is required. The workshop will include lots of time for Q&A, a chance to sign up for one or more subsequent field-trips to work with active hives, and a honey tasting!
Set up a hive in your yard this spring, and enjoy the wonder of bees for years to come.
