What an awesome experience to be standing on a mountain top, blue skies above, thousands of tiny honeybees buzzing all around us, and our 'heads in a beehive.' This is one of our greatest gifts as beekeepers. The bee keeper is truly blessed. May we be forever grateful for the 'Gift of the Bees'.

Our goal: To walk you through a season of keeping bees. 

The first class will be about equipment and materials; what you need and what you don't need. If you haven't bought anything yet, WAIT until after class so you don't spend money on things you don't need. The first & second classes do not require any special bee suites/attire, but subsequent classes will. 

Come, learn about bees, beekeeping, and how to be a responsible beekeeper in an urban environment.
