This class is the first in a series of four classes designed to provide participants with the information and skills needed to set up and manage a hive of honeybees in an urban setting. The first class will be concerned with honeybee biology and the importance of bees for pollination and honey production. Hive components will be discussed as well as where to purchase equipment, supplies, books & beekeeping tools & clothing. Keys to success for keeping honeybees in an urban area will also be covered. If weather permits, we will open a hive to give participants an up-close look into an active honeybee colony.
