Interested in getting started with beekeeping? Already a beekeeper but would like to learn more? Join us each month as we suit up to go elbow deep into a hive, taste honey, and delve into the art and science of beekeeping with topics such as beekeeping equipment, hive placement, life inside the hive, pest & disease management, honey harvesting and overwintering your hive. You will learn by doing, and gain valuable personal experience under the guidance of Dr. Jason Graham, experienced beekeeper and bee scientist!
