Organic Bee School
NOTE: Organic Bee School is held on Saturday, March 23rd and Sunday, March 24th, from 8:30am-4:30pm on BOTH days.

During this two-day Bee School, Jean-Claude Bourrut will go over the basic techniques of organic beekeeping, including materials and equipment; beehive structure; the life cycle of bees; hive development; dynamic, seasonal apiary work; honey and hive products; common pests and diseases, and their organic management.  

For those who are thinking about getting bees or are new to beekeeping, this is a great way to learn the how, why, and when of organic bee management.

Cost of registration also includes an additional hands-on workshop that will happen in the apiary in April (date TBD). This workshop will focus on inspecting a beehive, how to manipulate frames, recognizing stages of development, diagnosing situations and analyzing appropriate responses. We will also look at what spring management entails concretely, including swarm prevention. Bring your own veil if you have one, we'll provide for those who do not.

Instructor: Jean-Claude Bourrut is the Assistant Director for the Natick Community Organic Farm. He has been keeping honeybees for 20 years in urban and suburban settings, and currently manages a dozen hives in two apiaries. He is also the co-founder of the Boston Beekeeping Club and Tour De Hives, an annual bike tour of local apiaries in the Greater Boston Area.

Pre-registration required.

$145 non-members

Books will be provided on the day of the class, for an additional $12.
