Why this makes a great gift

Honeybees are such complex creatures, yet their true beauty is the fact that they are so SIMPLE. Our beekeeping 101 course is guided on that principle: laid back and casual, but also full of purpose. No experience is necessary. This experience includes an in class and an outdoor bee yard portion.

Join us for our Beekeeping 101 workshop! This course is a light version of our Intro to Beekeeping course intended for those looking to learn about honeybees & pollinators but who may not intend to keep bees in the next season.

What You Will Do

The first portion of the class covers the honey bee life cycle, jobs/roles within the colony, honey production, the role of honey, pollen & nectar to the hive, and properties of natural honey.

We will spend the second half of the class out in the bee yard where we will look at various scenarios and topics within the hives, including locating the queen, spotting eggs & brood, pollen & honey and overall hive health.

Each participant will have the opportunity to handle a frame and will be sent home with one (1) digital photo with the bees. Equipment can be provided, however, if you do have your own, feel free to bring it!
