Our goal is to educate people in the best management and styles of sustainable beekeeping. Programs, classes, workshops, and symposiums, are bee-centric with a bee first philosophy. We believe healthy bees will provide enjoyment and surplus when managed correctly.
Our programs are open to the general beekeeping community and are designed to build upon foundational training.
Learn what you need to know about starting a hive, keeping it healthy, keeping records, recognizing potential problems, carrying out Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and harvesting honey.
Delve into more advanced topics of beekeeping guided by professionals with combined experience of over 75 years. We offer this program for those that have taken the foundational series and can pass the oral and field tests, as well as an apiary inspection. The program is designed to create master beekeepers who can be successful in any situation and environment, as well as pioneer new insights and skills for future challenges.
Younger beekeepers are needed and we have designed a season-long summer program for young beekeepers ages 12-18.
The sustainable beekeeping program is for those who have a grasp on the basic techniques of beekeeping but are looking to take their practice to the next level. This is a 18-month program dedicated to providing you with the skill set to becoming a sustainable beekeeper.
