Introduction to Bees and Beekeeping Session 2

We had such a big turn out that we are going to ask that you come to either the July 6 or 20th, 2013 class.  We want everyone to have a chance to get an up close and personal introduction to the workings of a hive.  Unfortunately, the swarm that we added to the hive didn't stay for very long so we need to get new bees for the garden so we've postponed the class to give us enough time to get the hive up and running.  We'll let you know how things are going.


July 6 or 20th, 2013 9-11AM 
Session 2: 
Management of bees/hive for an urban environment 
What can go wrong? 
Harvesting, processing and storage of honey

    Thank you all for your interest for the intro to beekeeping class. We have reached the limit for the class. Priority was given to those that attended the first session and I have sent an email those that are confirmed for this Saturday. There is still room for July20. If you were not able to attend this session, I am sure we will have another beekeeping series in the future. Luis

      Hi David, thank you for your interest in the class. Although it is not shown here, this session is closed/full. The classes are kind of independent of each other and can be taken in any order. If you like, you can take the second session. Thanks. Luis.
