      We usually suggest to look into your local beekeeping association for classes. We will do hands on workshops in the spring and summer. I have added you to our newsletter that will have workshop information once we schedule them. Just email us when the workshop is scheduled to reserve a spot.

    Hello,

    I was recently gifted some hives and will be cleaning them up this weekend. I would like to know when your next class is. If I’m not too late, I would also like to be added to your waiting list for bees as well.

    We just acquired two used hives and have been busy cleaning them up. We are not sure what all we need new and what we can reuse, but we want to go about it correctly and as naturally as possible. Have been interested in bees for years, but haven’t made the plunge till now. Need all the help and info we can get. We have heard positive reports of your bees and practices and would be interested in any classes and advice you can offer us.

    Hello… I noticed your “class schedule” and I find that interesting. I also noticed it’s for 5 weeks. Are there certain times of day, class times, etc that you could share? I’m asking to see ‘if’ taking the class is feasible, despite being interested. Thanks!

      Our classes are currently online due to COVID. The course is self paced with reading materials and powerpoint presentations during the week. On Saturday there is an optional zoom meeting to go over the material and ask questions. Following the zoom meeting the test will be opened to take any time between Saturday and Monday. This is a nice option since it can be done at any time and work around any schedule compared to the in class version. We will be starting another Beginning Beekeeper class early Spring. Give us a call or email if you are interested.
