Bee Keeping 201

February 3 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$30

Join Meghan Orman (Honey Bee A Keeper) philosophy teacher, Montessori educator, and avid beekeeper. Meghan has been keeping bees for three years, and studying them for more than five. She will introduce us to the bee's life and help us understand how to support them.

This 4-hour course we will cover all the essentials for getting started with backyard beekeeping. We will cover bee biology, reproduction, and social structure, as well as the basics for getting started with beekeeping, including necessary equipment, legal requirements, where to get bees, and pest management techniques. We will also compare and contrast various approaches to bee keeping (e.g., “natural”, “organic”, and “conventional”) to find the philosophy that’s right for you. While our focus will be primarily on hobbyist level beekeeping, all those interested in honey bees or beekeeping generally are encouraged to register. (includes a workbook and honey tastings).
