Introduction to Beekeeping

February 25, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Bill Perkins – Boston Area Beekeepers Association

Nonmembers can join today during checkout and take immediate advantage of member prices.
Did you know that you can enjoy honey, beeswax, pollen and the miracle of bees right in your backyard? Aside from the fact that a healthy hive can produce several gallons of delicious, healthful honey every year, working with bees is tremendously enjoyable.

In this one-session introductory workshop, you will gain an introduction to the fascinating world of the honeybee. We will talk about what it takes to keep a busy, productive hive of bees happy; where to get bees of your own; how to set up and maintain a hive; and what types of activities and time commitment are required throughout the year. This is a beginner’s workshop, so no previous knowledge is required. Fee: $25 members / $30 nonmembers.

Registration is required.
