Charles Andros, former NH/VT Apiary Inspector, has 47 seasons of extensive apicultural experience which he likes to pass on!  Beekeeping Workshops at $35 each, children under 18 free when accompanied by parent. All held at his home from 1-4 PM, or on ZOOM!  Look for the “BEE” sign on the south side of Walpole Valley Road (18 MacLean Road, Alstead, NH 03602). Bring a veil, if you have one, as we shall be opening some colonies. Water and sunscreen are also a plus. We’ll be inside if it is a rainy day.

Registration required. Email: or call 603-756-9056.
