2017 Bee Schools
Below is a listing of the classes we have so far. Check back as we’ll be updating the page as we get more information.
This is a great way to learn how to setup and care for you bees. At these schools you will learn the equipment you will need to build and purchase, how to get your bees, how to put them in their new home, how to help them grow, swarming, diseases and pests, how to get honey and lastly how to get them through the winter.
