Join guest instructor Paul Koski from the San Francisco Beekeepers Association for this four part Urban Beekeeping series! Come learn all that you need to know to manage your own urban bee hive in San Francisco.

In this second class participants will learn where to get bees and how to install them into a hive. The class will also cover basic hive management principles: how to open and inspect a hive and what the beekeeper should expect to see and do for the first few months of a new hive. Swarming, stings and bee temperament will also be covered. As part of the workshop we will set up a new hive in the garden as well as look into GFE's already active hive.

For phone or email registration: Please call (415) 731-5627, or email info [at] gardenfortheenvironment.org. Or register in the garden the day of the workshop.
