Needs a location


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.

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

Those who are ready to apply are invited to email a resume/CV and statement of interest to [masked]

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.

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.

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 this year? Please fill out this form and we will contact you. (

We hope to welcome you this year!
