Conscious Beekeeping: Special Session for Beginners
The Pfeiffer Center- Chestnut Ridge, NY
This half-day orientation for beginning beekeepers will cover: A comparison of Langstroth, top bar and Warré hives; the parts of the Langstroth hive, and how they work; choosing an appropriate site for your hives; rhythms of life in the honeybee colony; and the basics of working with bees. Weather permitting, we will visit the Pfeiffer Center’s apiary, where we’ll open a hive and demonstrate the techniques discussed in the classroom.
