Conscious Beekeeping: Introductory Workshop for Beginners
April 24, 2020 @ 2:00 PM - 5:30 PM| $55.00
With Bill Day
This half-day orientation for beginning beekeepers will cover: Basic biology of the honeybee colony; rhythms of the year and the beekeeper’s role in the life of the hive; a discussion of “alternative” hive styles; siting your hives; and the basics of working with bees.
Weather permitting, we will visit the Pfeiffer Center’s apiary, where we’ll open a hive and illuminate topics discussed in the classroom.
Beginning beekeepers who plan to attend the Conscious Beekeeping workshop on Saturday, April 25 are strongly encouraged to also attend this workshop.
Bill Day has been keeping bees for fifteen years. He is the beekeeper and beekeeping instructor at the Pfeiffer Center, and also keeps bees at Bluefield Farm in Blauvelt, NY.
