2019 Beginner Beekeeping

Urban Honey Bee and Mueller Honey Bee Removal will once again be hosting and teaching the only beginner beekeeping course taught by some of the regions leading professional beekeepers. We have filled the class with as much information as we can to get you ready for beekeeping in Ohio and include, 'The Backyard Beekeeper' by Kim Flottum that we've found to be full of great information.

The class will be at Bricco Prime in the Portage Lakes again. You are welcome to come early and enjoy dinner at one of the best restaurants in the area. Drinks and food are available for purchase and can be brought into the class.

Courses are 7-9pm, Thursday nights beginning February 21, 2019 and continuing through March 21, 2019, with an additional hands on day at the Urban Honey Bee apiary in Doylestown, date to be determined based on weather.

We are bringing in other professionals to expand the educational benefits of the class and give you as many perspectives as we can. Apiary Dave, the apiarist at Stratford Ecological Center, Mel of Blue Sky Bee Supply, and Jason Bosler of Bosler's Bee Stuff will all be joining us.

Registration has begun and the class fills up very fast. Please contact urbanhoneybee@gmail.com for more information.

Cost is $85 per person or $120 per couple (one book is included, a second can be purchased if needed).
