I’ve been getting some requests to do online workshops for some of my fine readers that live outside of NYC so I’ve finally taken a hint!
My first web class will be on Sunday, January the 22nd as part of a three-session, 9 hour beekeeping intensive. It’s going to be as robust and informative as the classes I teach in person here in the city, only with this class you can show up in your pajamas. Hell! Take the class naked for all I care!
In all seriousness though, we’ll cover all the basics of beekeeping: honeybee anatomy and behavior, types of hives, urban forage, acquiring bees, hive management, honey harvesting, pests and diseases and winter management. It’s going to be a lot of information, but the goal is to adequately visually demonstrate everything you need to know to get started with bees this spring.
My focus will be on treatment-free and passive pest and disease management but we will discuss other forms of treatment and discuss the pros and cons of utilizing them.
