We have an awesome opportunity for 10 people (per class) to join us for a day of beekeeping!
During this beekeeper for a day we will start preparing for the himalayan blackberry flow, checking for mites, and making sure we reduce swarming potential. All three are hot topics for spring that you can use to help give your bees a better chance in winter. The more honey, the less mites, and less swarming, the better!
The cost of this class will be $50 per session and is NON-REFUNDABLE due to the fact that it is a small class & fills up fast. This class will be taught by Danny Najera.
