New for 2022: We are offering a series of 8 twice-monthly in-person seminars lasting 1.5-2 hours starting May 1st. This is for 6-10 committed beekeepers with 2-4 hives, with 3 or more years of experience, with any degree of success, who are comfortable with basic beekeeping skills. The seminar will focus on sustainability topics, such as splitting colonies and keeping and over-wintering nucs. Seminars will be facilitated by Rick Church.
