This class is an introduction to the world of beekeeping. This two-hour class will touch on the basics of bee care and beehive maintenance. If weather permits, at the end of class, you’ll suit up in protective gear (we’ll provide) and join our Head Beekeeper, Nick Hoefly, to visit the beehives onsite. Spots are limited to 20 students, so don’t miss out!

 

This class is intended for adults, and may not be suitable for people with bee sting allergies. Signing a safety and liability waiver is required for participation.
