Beekeeping for the New Year begins in the fall. In the second part to this introduction to beekeeping, apiarist Paul Strommer will help interested beginners determine what they need to know, order and prepare in the fall and winter to be ready when the weather breaks in April. He will also provide hands-on instruction about fall hive maintenance, how to track the colony’s progress through the season, and prepare the hive for the winter. This program is a valuable introduction for anyone interested in beginning their own hive in 2014 and is open to all participants. All equipment provided. Participants will interact directly with the bees, so please take any necessary precautions.
Pre-registration required; $30 members, $35 non-members.
