Beekeeping is a fun and interesting hobby that allows you to produce the delicious treat of honey while helping the environment. Learn the basic principles necessary to begin this fascinating hobby. We'll discuss location requirements, how to obtain bees, required equipment, and how to care for your new colony. Also, a basic appreciation of honey bees will be presented to help the beginner understand the 'why' underlying management manipulations. No prior knowledge of honey bees or beekeeping is required. Class is taught by Vincent Aloyo, PhD, Master Beekeeper.
