Calling all wannabeekeepers, the bee-curious, and newbeeks: Bee2Bee Honey Collective presents our Introductory Beekeeping Workshop: September 11th and 12th, 2021.
In this two day workshop, we will discuss the basics of what you need to know to get started keeping bees in your backyard or rooftop. We'll discuss honey bee biology and behavior and learn what honeybee stewardship entails.
The class will focus on sustainable urban beekeeping, including a hands-on demonstration of necessary equipment and information on where and when to purchase supplies.
You'll walk away with the resources and knowledge you'll need to decide whether to pursue this sweet, rewarding hobby!
If the weather permits, we will have an apiary tour - so bring a suit if you have one! If not, one can be provided. If the weather is not suitable to open hives, you will receive an invite to a future hive visit.
Also, please wear closed-toe shoes that cover your ankles and refrain from using scented clothing or beauty/hair products.
This event is mostly inside and not socially distanced. All attendees must have proof of full COVID-19 vaccination to attend the event.
Full Vaccination is 14 days after your second dose of the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine or at least 14 days after your single dose of the Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.
We offer virtual classes for those who would rather learn at home!
Infused honey is the result of combining honey and high quality dried herbs or other dried ingredients, plus time, love, and patience. Once the desired flavor profile is reached, we carefully strain the added ingredients.
Creamed honey is a “controlled crystallization” that allows for small crystals to make the honey spreadable instead of the larger crystals of solid, unprocessed honey.
