Courses and Workshops

Beekeeping Courses & Workshops

Hands-on experience can really make a difference!


Learn from experienced beekeepers who value your interest in learning how to safely and responsibly provide a healthy environment for your bees to prosper.

Because many of our courses & workshops have a hands-on component, as well as classroom and homework, most offerings are arranged so that the information provided coincides with the occurrences of the beekeeping year.

For this reason our class offerings are as seasonal as keeping bees is.

Successful completion of all course materials and attendance of lectures and hands-on sessions merits a certificate of completion for that course or workshop.

We currently offer over 200 hours of programming...
