     9:00am - 11:30am

This workshop is designed for backyard beekeepers interested in learning intermediate level skills. There’s no prerequisite knowledge required, but it will be more advanced than an introductory level workshop. We will have a short lecture and group learning style introduction to topics and then an apiary tour with open hive inspection with practical, hands on skills to move you to the next level of beekeeping.

This class will focus on common beekeeping practices, including integrated pest management strategies in an urban setting, some DIY beekeeping ideas and skills to make sure you know all of your options to keep your bees healthy. Even if you have read a few books, taken some other classes or already started keeping bees, this interactive workshop will have a lot to offer you.

Please wear beekeeping appropriate clothing (closed toe shoes, socks, long pants, long sleeves -if desired, no perfumes or heavy scents, etc.). We will have some protective beekeeping gear to share, but please bring your own if you have it.
