Have you ever wanted to harvest honey from your own beehive? Would you like to collect beeswax to make candles or soap? Do you have a touch of ‘backyard biologist’ in your blood? If so, we might have just what you need – a series of workshops covering the fundamentals of beekeeping!

In Unit 2, learn techniques for spring and winter feeding and treatments for parasites, diseases, and disorders. Dan will also provide information on purchasing honeybees.
