Practical beekeeping goes a step further than our Introduction to Beekeeping Course (Beekeeping Fast Track) as the whole training is in the yard with the bees. You are required to have taken an Intro class from us or from a local club and have the equipment required to work on the hives.
This is the program you will need to bring home all that information you received so far, the videos you watched and the books you have read!
In this program we will inspect the hives, feed, treat for mites, make nucs and/or divides, install them, understand equipment and tools and practice our basic skills while we discuss management techniques, a detailed calendar for the year, harvesting equipment and methodologies, basic queen rearing and more.
The class meets 4 times from April through July 2021. Dates TBD
