Conscious Beekeeping: Special Session for Beginners
With Bill Day
Friday, April 28, 2:00-5:30pm 

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.

Beginning beekeepers who plan to attend the Conscious Beekeeping workshop on Saturday, April 29 are strongly encouraged to register for this session.
