Spend the weekend with experienced beekeepers learning the skills you need to care for a hive of your own. You will build your own Langstroth hive and receive some essentials (except for the bees) to start to welcome your tiny fuzzy livestock in the spring. Topics will include basic bee biology, issues affecting bee health, and benefits of keeping bees.
Free presentation on Satuday night with John Lewis, Education Coordinator for the Beekeepers Association of the Northern Shenandoah. Live music to follow.
