Needs a location


As winter begins, we will continue accepting applications for 2019 programs. We accept on a rolling basis, and usually carry a waitlist by the time class starts in February.

Please read on for more information about our programs for 2019.

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.

- Field Studies Fellowship: Set up individually for those who can commit to certain weekdays.

Please scroll down for additional information on those programs and how to apply.

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.

Please drop us a line at [masked] about what you would like to do, and let us know how best to reach you. Earlybirds who are ready to apply for the Saturday Series can email a resume/CV and statement of interest to [masked].

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.)

Looking for certified NYC-grown honey or ways to give? Please fill out this form and we will contact you. (

We hope to welcome you in 2019 -- if not sooner!
