Labor Day to Thanksgiving is the time to make sure your hives have everything they need to survive the winter months and meet the spring ready to build up and thrive.
In this half-day workshop, Pfeiffer Center beekeeper Bill Day will share his checklist for winter readiness, the reasoning behind it, and how to apply it. Weather permitting, most of our time will be spent at the hives in the Pfeiffer Center garden.
You will leave this workshop with clear guidelines for evaluating your hives, and steps to take to prepare them for the coming winter.
Bill Day has been keeping bees for fifteen years. He is the beekeeper and beekeeping instructor at the Pfeiffer Center, and also keeps bees at Bluefield Farm in Blauvelt, NY.
