Hands-on Workshop: Beginning Beekeeping

There's no better way to learn a new skill than to jump in and get your hands dirty! Our beginning beekeeping workshop allows you to gain some hands-on experience before starting your own honey bee adventure. It is the perfect environment to get comfortable with bees and learn maintenance techniques alongside experienced beekeepers. We work with Langstroth, Top Bar, and Warre hives in our educational apiary, providing students with the opportunity to interact with a variety of hive and management styles.

Each beginner session will have a seasonally relevant focus based on what the bees are doing at that point in the season! We will provide suits, tools, general hive inspection checklists and will guide students through full hive inspections.
