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 5 class course goes beyond the basics, and into the nitty gritty of beekeeping. You will finish this course prepared to embark on your own beekeeping adventure! This series of two-hour classes will teach you about bee behavior and biology, and best practices in: pest and disease management, feeding, beehive construction, beekeeper safety precautions, winterizing your hive, honey harvesting, and more! The course is taught by Green-Wood’s Head Beekeeper, Nick Hoefly of Astor Apiaries. All 5 classes must be attended for participation in this course, and students will receive a certificate of completion. The first 4 classes will take place in our Modern Chapel, and the final class will be a “live action” class with full equipment at the beehives. Spots are limited to 20 students, so don’t miss out!
Under a summer sky, lit by the full moon, join producer and performer Trish Nelson in a vow: “I am here tonight to pledge my support to my fellow sisters.” And then the storytelling begins! Nelson, who has put together live shows and tours across the country for Key & Peele, Broad City, Amy Schumer, and many others, brings her West Coast sensation, The Secret Society of the Sisterhood to Brooklyn. The theme of the evening is: “So…That Happened.” Prepare yourself for true tales that are sincerely heartfelt and often hilarious!
