Suggestions for a successful overwintering of hives and new start in the spring

 (This class can be taken as a stand-alone course or as part of our comprehensive four-module Spikenard Biodynamic Beekeeping Training)

In this workshop we will not only look at what needs to be done in autumn to guide hives into the winter as strong and healthy as possible, but we will also learn about the winter and early spring months, often the most difficult time of the year for the bees. We will take a closer look at various illnesses and probable causes, as well as share our methods of hive feeding, wrapping, and consolidation for best possible over-wintering success.

Wonderful home-cooked organic lunches and snacks are provided.
