Beginning Beekeeping

with Brian Pride


Adapted course: Now LiveStream

You will learn what you need to begin beekeeping. We’ll cover tools, hive, location for an apiary, and how to obtain bees and install them in the hive.  You will learn about the life cycle of the bee, what they need to survive and how to care for them year-round.  You will be able to purchase bees and equipment through the class, if you choose.  Due to the COVID19 situation, we are working on a plan to continue to include a hands-on session, more info to come.  (Required textbook: The Beekeeper’s Handbook, 4th edition, by Diana Sammataro and Alphonse Avitabile.)
