COURSE DESCRIPTION: Beginning Beekeeping/Apprenticeship
This course will focus on the hobby, residential and small farm beekeeper. Emphasis will be put on the seasonal care of new hives and colonies. Our style is networking, participation and interaction. Our discussions are tailored to your needs and questions. We have examples and hands-on learning aids. You get to see, hold, analyze, smell and feel what the books only talk about. You will accrue a proactive knowledge base to keep your bees happy, productive, healthy and safe. The course is sanctioned by the Washington Master Beekeepers Association. Upon completion participants will receive an Apprenticeship Certificate.
If you should have any questions please feel free to let me know. I look forward to seeing you soon.
