Keeping Honey Bees with Confidence

March 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Are you new to beekeeping? Do you want a refresher on beekeeping basics? Or are you considering beekeeping as a hobby but don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered.

Greg Hildebrand will teach a beginner’s beekeeping class at Dill’s Tavern aimed at helping participants get the most out of a nucleus hive — a small honey bee colony created from a larger colony. He’ll give practical guidance that covers all the basics and go over mistakes that you can easily avoid. This class will have a general outline but will be largely influenced by your questions and the specific information you’re looking to learn. Students will leave with a handout of important points to remember and a pack of mixed wildflower seeds to plant at home to keep our local bees happy!

$10 registration fee. Online tickets are limited to the first 35 registrants and sales end 48 hours before event.

For information about reserving your own nucleus hive this spring, please contact Greg Hildebrand at honeybeefriendly@gmail.com.
