UEC: Beekeeping Basics Course

February 13, 2012

Three 2-hour courses will give you the foundation to start beekeeping in a Top Bar Hive including setup, installing the queen, placement, inspections and harvesting. We cover swarming, stings and what you can expect and how to deepen your new relationship with bees. Course includes Phil Chandler’s Barefoot Beekeeping book. You are required to take a test, attend a Beesentation and a hands-on class in spring to receive the Beepod Certificate for Beekeeping.
