This half-day orientation for beginning beekeepers will cover: Basic biology of the honeybee colony; rhythms of the year and the beekeeper’s role in the life of the hive; a comparison of Langstroth, top bar and Warré hives; siting your hives; and the basics of working with bees.

Weather permitting, we will visit the Pfeiffer Center’s apiary, where we'll open a hive and illuminate topics discussed in the classroom.

Beginning beekeepers who plan to attend the Conscious Beekeeping workshop on Saturday, April 28 are strongly encouraged to register for this session.

Fee: $55
