This is an old class! Check out the current classes, or sign up for our mailing list to see if we'll offer this one again.

Bees are coming this month. Are you ready yet? Hives painted? Frames assembled? Impending sense of doom setting in? Join Tim and Shelly from for a last minute seminar session on new hives and what to do with them.

We'll spend time talking about equipment assembly, feeding methods, and how to keep your bees alive and healthy to spring into the new beekeeping season.
