The class fills up every time we offer it, so sign up early! Honeybees are a joy to keep in the backyard simply for their buzzing presence and, on hot days, the smell of honey, wafting through the air within ten feet of the hive. They increase pollination in your yard and therefore increase your yields from fruit trees and vegetables.

This is the perfect time to prepare for the upcoming beekeeping season. Learn the basics of beekeeping, hive management, seasonal maintenance, honeybee health, and basic biology. We will discuss how to harvest honey, beeswax, pollen, and propolis from the hive. We’ll cover what you need to know to feel ready to have a Langstroth backyard beehive -- how to get bees, what equipment you need, where to put the hive, how to extract honey and upkeep the hive.

There will even be some of our local honey to try. You have the option to purchase the protective wear and beekeeping equipment from us at reduced prices. Purchase your start up equipment from Blossomland and you will qualify for a partial or full refund of the class fee!!!!
