For the thirteenth year, our ever popular Beekeeping 101 Course is back for 2019!
This course will teach you everything you need to know to safely start and maintain a beehive in an urban, suburban, or rural environment. You may not be a master beekeeper by the end, but you will know enough to begin or deepen your fascinating love story with honeybees.
This theoretical class will be taught in a state of the art smart classroom at NYIT, replete with films, equipment instruction, small field trips, and several expert volunteer beekeepers as your instructors. We will cover basic honeybee science, hive construction, regular hive inspection, swarming, harvesting, disease, and winterization.
This course is required for those who wish to apply for the 2019 NYCBA Urban Beekeeping Apprenticeship, which begins the first day of this course. To extend the theoretical education of this course with hands-on, experiential instruction from our urban beekeeping masters, we encourage you to check out our apprenticeship.
Become a beekeeper. It is easier than you may think, and more rewarding than you might imagine.
Alternating Saturdays, 10am-1pm
