Honey bees are a joy to keep in the backyard for their honey, their pollination, and simply their presence. In the morning, you’ll learn the basics of beekeeping - how to get bees, what equipment you need, where to put the hive, how to extract honey and upkeep the hive. We’ll take a break for lunch and then visit a local backyard hive in the afternoon. The instructors will go into the hive and take out some honey. Then the class will participate in extracting the honey from the frames.

Morning: 9am - noon, BioFuel Oasis, 1441 Ashby Ave, Berkeley
Afternoon: 1-3pm, at a local backyard beehive

instructor: Jennifer Radtke
Cost: $45 (or $25 for just the morning lecture)
