Beekeeping 101 (Fishtown)

Registration Required. Whether you are an experienced beekeeper, a new beekeeper, or just thinking about starting a backyard beehive, this workshop will give you through the ins and outs of managing honey bees. Don Shump, owner of the Philadelphia Bee Co. and Greensgrow’s beekeeper, will be on hand to share his years of experience as an apiarist in Philadelphia. Don will walk you through a beekeeper's typical first year so you know what to expect, and he will tell you what local resources are available to help you succeed. Plenty of time will be allotted for discussion; please be prepared to ask questions. The class will touch base on Bee Biology, Bee Behavior, Hive Management, Swarming, Equipment and Bee Products.
More and more people are getting involved in beekeeping these days as we become more aware of where our food is coming from, to make their own honey, have some of their own pollinating buddies for their gardens, and to offset die offs of honey bee populations in recent years. Find out what it’s all about! Everyone will receive a $10.00 Greensgrow Gift Card after the workshop.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
