What's Included

This 3 part series is designed to build on the basic information presented in Introduction to Backyard Beekeeping. Each week will cover a different topic relating to beekeeping and include a visit to the observation area of Pioneer Farmsteaders’ bee yard for an up close look at the bees. This class will cover different varieties of honeybees and their strengths and weaknesses in the backyard setting. We will also discuss different types of hives and beekeeping techniques. We will visit the bee yard to learn about the life stages of the honeybee and the beekeeper's role at each stage. Sign up in advance, program registration closes at midnight the day prior to the program start. * Located in the Outdoor Classroom *
