Workshop: Backyard Bee-Keeping

Saturday, February 24, 2018, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Did you know that you can keep bees in your backyard? Most normal-sized yards can play host to a hive of honey bees, and the folks who tend them enjoy honey, beeswax, royal jelly, and of course, the bees themselves. In fact, a healthy hive can produce several gallons of lovely, local honey every year.

These pollinators can be marvelously helpful by making fruits and vegetables more productive. Here on the farm, we keep bees not just because they help produce richer crops, but also because they are tremendously beneficial insects that are good for our neighbors and surrounding environment.

Come learn what it takes to keep a busy, productive hive of bees happy! Learn where to get your bees, how to set up and maintain the hive, and how to protect it from pests and disease. This is a beginner’s course, so you won’t need to bring any special equipment or supplies.This class also available on April 29.
