2019 Introduction to Beekeeping
Let Shaker Village help you learn everything needed to get started with beekeeping!
This course will teach participants about the honeybee life-cycle, choosing hive equipment and assembly, hive site selection, basic pest management, the costs of beekeeping, how to establish your first hives and what to expect in your first year as a beekeeper. Practical instruction and a variety of guides and resources will be shared. Participants will also take home a beginner beekeeping book.
This session is the first of a two-part series. Intermediate Beekeeping, hosted by Shaker Village on May 18, will further develop your beekeeping skills with instruction on how to grow your apiary with splits, manage pests, and a variety of other, more advanced topics.
