THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT! PLEASE VISIT OUR EVENTS CALENDAR TO CHECK OUT MORE GREAT UPCOMING WORKSHOPS. 

Event Description:
This winter introduction to beekeeping with Carin Zinter will leave you buzzing with excitement! Inside the warmth of our indoor loft classroom, Carin will provide you with a crash course in apiculture, walking participants through a brief history of beekeeping, the issues around beekeeping today, and the importance of apiculture in maintaining a healthy food system. We'll discuss the anatomy of a honey bee; the biology and life cycle of the colony; as well as equipment, hive architecture and basics in beekeeping safety.

This workshop is perfect for those of you who are considering beekeeping for the first time and want to learn more before bee season is in full swing. If this is the year for you to dive into beekeeping, this is a great place to start!
