Did you know that you can keep bees in your backyard? Even small urban yards (or roof tops) can play host to a hive of honey bees, and those who tend them can enjoy honey, beeswax, pollen and of course, the bees themselves.

In this three-hour workshop, you will learn what it takes to keep a busy, productive hive of bees happy. Learn where to get your bees, how to set up and maintain the hive, and what types of activities and time commitment are required throughout the year. This is a beginner’s course, so no previous knowledge is required. The workshop will include lots of time for Q&A, and is a good precursor to a more in-depth Bee School if you are uncertain whether keeping bees is right for you.
