Did you know that you can enjoy honey, beeswax, pollen and the miracle of bees right in your backyard? Aside from the fact that a healthy hive can produce several gallons of delicious, healthful honey every year, working with bees is tremendously enjoyable.

In this one-session introductory workshop, you will gain an introduction to the fascinating world of the honey bee. We will talk about what it takes to keep a busy, productive hive of bees happy; where to get bees of your own; how to set up and maintain a hive; and what types of activities and time commitment are required throughout the year. This is a beginner’s workshop, so no previous knowledge is required.
