Welcome -- We are accepting applications now for 2019 programs. Please read on for more information.
We offer two full-season, hands-on learning pathways for beekeeping (February to November):
- The Saturday Series: Classroom & hands-on for motivated people who will commit for the season. The Saturday Series meets approximately once a month, February through November, plus some ad hoc or weather dates. Location is usually Randall's Island. Scheduled dates will be posted shortly.
- Field Studies Fellowship: Set up individually for those who can commit to certain weekdays.
If you already know you want to apply for one of these programs, please email a resume/CV and statement of interest to [masked]
If you are already a beekeeper, or you would like to participate another way, please drop us a line at [masked] about what you would like to do, and let us know how best to reach you.
Volunteer and Corporate Responsibility opportunities are available, as well as an Internship Track for high school, interim year, and college/grad students.
For those who want just a little taste or who want to explore whether beekeeping is for you, please watch for Newcomer Events to be scheduled in season.
About Funding -- Our admission process is need-blind, but we are grateful for the support of students and friends. We can partner on grants, and can accept donations (tax deductible within the legal limits.)
