Keeping Honey Bees Confidently

April 6, 2019 @ 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! Registration fee $10. Ticket sales end 48 hours before event.

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