Swarms & Feral Bees: The Wildness in your Hive

* SWARMS & FERAL BEES: Wildness in Your Hive

May 14 Monday at 6:30pm

Our bees are from wild swarms with good genetic diversity. They are naturally strong and healthy and you can't buy wildness. Learn to peacefully interact with and collect a swarm of your own. You can even encourage wild swarms to populate hives on their own. Be available after this class to go on calls to collect swarms with other class members.

Our natural perspective embodies respect, kindness and sacredness of Life. Use your senses (and common sense) to understand what they are doing from season to season and ways to help bees thrive. Good for new beekeepers and bee-friendly gardeners who want to care for bees in a non-conventional, organic and biodynamic manner. I'll also cover an embarrassing list of mistakes I've made over the years with the hope that you won't have to repeat these errors.


* BEE CARE THROUGH THE YEAR: What to Do and When

May 18 Friday at 6:30pm

The bee's annual cycle, month to month. What are your responsibilities? Know what is happening inside your hive without opening it up, by observing bee behavior using all your senses and learning what all their signs mean.


* THE SPIRIT OF THE HONEYBEE: Sacredness of Keeping Bees

June 8 Friday at 6:30pm

Deeply profound wisdom from the bees about the different roles they play in Nature. Honeybees are so much more than you would imagine.

    Jacqueline has such a gentle spirit and conscience connection to the bees that make learning about them more than academic - it's an emotional experience. Can't wait to learn more.

    Just another great class! Got my list of items needed to take to a swarm removal so now I just need to put my tub together. Can't wait for my first swarm collection all on my own!
