Considering becoming a beekeeper? Take the first step by learning about this fascinating and important pollinator. This is a great time of year for new beekeepers to start planning so equipment is ready and bees are ordered in time for the 2017 season. In this class, you’ll learn about the roles of the queen, workers and drones within a colony and how they interact with seasonal cycles.
Learn about basic considerations you’ll need to take into account before jumping into this exciting new hobby including where to place your hive, equipment options and sources, bee sources, and time required. At the end of class, you’ll have the opportunity to sample some local honeys from around Marin County.
