Below are pictures of our 2022 Beginning Class.
Many thanks to all our volunteer instructors for sharing their time and wealth of knowledge!
A class instructor and beginning beekeeping attendees discuss what tools are needed to put together a hive box.
Our 3rd beginning beekeeping class offered hands-on training at a member's bee yard. The two pictures above show a swarm that had landed on a tree branch. One of the class instructors showed the class how to capture and box a swarm. This is as real as it gets!
Our beginning class was split into groups and was an assigned an instructor who showed them how to find the queen, larva, capped brood, burr comb and some other interesting things in the hive.
