Are you curious about beekeeping or looking to start your first hive next year? During this class you’ll be introduced to the art of beekeeping and learn the basics needed to start your own colony. Not only will you learn the time and financial commitment to expect, you’ll gain practical advice on how to get your hive off to the best start. The class will then delve into the basics of establishing a hive, including choosing the “right” honeybees, selecting an appropriate hive management system, and securing the essential tools and equipment. And because every good beekeeper needs to know the “rules”, this course will wrap up by reviewing the current local laws and ordinances that surround hobbyist beekeeping.
Class will be held at The Inn at Hudson Gardens.
