The Bee School 2013
Urban Beekeeping Classes at Homesteader’s Emporium are to begin February 16 and run until the end of August.
Keeping bees is an amazing avocation, the bees themselves are individually insects but collectively mammal like, making beekeeping an endlessly fascinating and challenging subject. Nine sessions long with 27 hours of instruction come and learn organic and sustainable beekeeping with a master beekeeper in a warm and welcoming setting.
