Junior Beekeeping Series

We’re starting a new trend!!

Edonna, my beekeeping friend, and I have talked long about the need to have a beekeeping course geared specifically for children.  She and I have both seen children’s curiosity about honeybees rise as we address the typical fears surrounding honeybees.  We’d love to see the next generation reignite the art of beekeeping.  Pulling from our teaching experience, we’ve designed a 20-hour course specifically for children, aged 8 – 15.  This is a great addition to any child’s education!
