  • WAITLIST IS OPEN FOR 2018 BEEKEEPER TRAINING PROGRAMS

    ... various places ...

    Welcome and thanks for your interest in joining us! Please scroll down for more information about 2018 programs. Saturday Series is currently full but we accept applications on a rolling basis and generally have a couple of entry points during the season (February to November). We offer two seasonal hands-on learning pathways for beekeeping: The Saturday Series, and Field Studies Fellowship. We invite motivated people who will commit for the season to apply for the 2018 Saturday Series. Field Studies Fellowships are set up individually for those who can commit to certain weekdays. Please email Organizer for more details and application instructions for these programs. 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. There is opportunity for an Internship track for high school, interim year, and college/grad students. We have other volunteer and corporate responsibility opportunities as well. Please drop us a line about what you would like to do, and let us know how to reach you. We hope to welcome you in 2018! ________________________ About the Saturday Series: Saturday Series takes place at Randall's Island, 5-Boro Greenroof. Each session lasts at least 3 hours, and the program includes both classroom and hands-on activity. Teachers are professionals and experienced hobbyists. We keep the class fairly small so everyone can participate and build a nice community of learners. The course is a full-season commitment and we take attendance seriously. If you already have a site, you may choose to start your first hive and follow along with us at the larger apiary. But many prefer to learn with us for a season to gain experience before they decide whether they would like bees of their own. And some continue to volunteer with us, regardless whether they have hives of their own. Our weekday track: Field Studies Fellowship (FSF), is scheduled separately depending on the bees' needs at various sites, and participant schedules. Please email Organizer for more details and application instructions. 2018 SCHEDULED & TENTATIVE CLASS DATES Feb 24 Mar 10 Apr 7 (Tentative) Apr 14 Apr 28 May 5 Jun 2 Jul 7 Aug 4 Sep 8 Oct 13 Nov 3 Dec 1 (Tentative) ==WINTER BREAK ==
