Beekeeping Workshop Series
The motivation for this series is to equip those who are serious about beekeeping as a hobby and want to acquire their own bees.
We will begin with the very basics of beekeeping and build upon that knowledge with each class. Weather permitting, we will be working in the bee yard for a portion of each class.
There will be 7, 3-hour classes in this series, starting promptly at 9 am and finishing at noon. If the morning class fills, we will have an afternoon class which will meet from 1pm – 4pm. The classes will begin in November and end in June with the Honey Harvest. There is no class in December.
Class I: ( November 10th ) Honey Bee Biology; Equipment, Tools and Clothing
Class II: ( January 12th ) Apiary Location; Codes and Regulations; Honey Processing Houses; Beekeeping Products and Services
Class III: ( February 9th ) Feeding your Bees; Foraging Plants for Bees
Class IV: ( March 9th ) Yearly Management of your Apiary
Class V: (April 13th) Installation of Nucs and Packages; Brood Diseases
Class VI: (May 4th) Adult Diseases; Parasites
Class VII: (June 8th) Honey Harvest! You will learn by doing. We’ll cover three different ways to remove bees from your super frames, and then take the supers to the garage to begin the extraction process. Each student will leave with a jar of honey.
Cost for the Beekeeper’s Series: $200 per person for 7 classes, 21 hours of instruction. There is a 10% discount per person for 2 or more family members.
( these classes individually will be $40 each )
*this price does not include the Bee Certification exam fee of $40.
Because this class is limited, there is a $50 non-refundable deposit to hold your spot in the class. The remainder will be due on or before the first class in November.
