Intro to Urban Beekeeping
Be a beekeeping hero: The bee population is experiencing catastrophic dieoff from pesticides. It would be a pretty tough world without bees. It is thought that urban beekeepers may be able to save the bee from extinction.

Learn how to keep bees in your own backyard in this introductory workshop. Backwards Beekeepers co-founder Kirk Anderson teaches you how to install a calm, happy hive in your urban backyard.

Hathaway Ranch Museum
Santa Fe Springs
Saturday, August 18
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

The Backwards Beekeepers' goal is to do right by the bees so that the bees can return the favor. They're "Backwards" because they rely on observation and natural practices rather than pesticides and other chemicals to keep their bees thriving. Not only do their bees thrive, they produce amazing, chemical-free honey!

What you will learn in this workshop:

- How to set up an urban beehive including cost-effective and homemade supplies
- Basic equipment needs
- How to feed your bees
- How to make starter strips
- Principles of bee rescue
- Principles of harvesting honey

Potluck to follow! Bring food to share and join Kirk Anderson and the members of two local beekeeping clubs for lunch, noon to 2:00 p.m., on site at the beautiful and historic Hathaway Ranch Museum.

Call Kirk Anderson with any questions at 323-646-9651, or visit

This event is part of the Whittier Time Bank monthly skill-building workshop series, in collaboration with Whittier Backyard Farms and Hathaway Ranch Museum.
