When: Saturday, Feb 23, 2019 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Cost: Tuition $55. Member Tuition $45. Materials fee $0.

Join us for a journey into beekeeping. Establish the basic foundation to become a beekeeper, learn all about the many benefits bees provide and what it takes for honey bees to thrive in our area. Taste the many flavors of honey and as a special bonus, a hands-on lesson in making some of the best beeswax hand cream ever! Beekeeping is an exciting hobby and is best shared with a grandparent, friend or child (age 10 and up). So, if you are thinking about someday getting your own hive, this is the course for you. The instructor for this course is Tim Norray, owner of Black Sheep Honey company, and last year he had over 500 hives (30 million bees if you do the math)!
