The best way to learn beekeeping is in multiple hives of bees with a very experienenced beekeeper.
BeeWeaver's beekeeping classes are taught by experienced and skilled beekeepers: Dan Weaver, Roosevelt Roberson, & Jackie Kohlmaier.
Beekeeping classes are tailored to the student's needs and will be hands-on learning with over an hour in hives and ample time given to questions/answers. Most classes last over 2 hours, and we encourage each participant to work the bees themselves. We have noted that new beekeepers who participate in our group lessons have an increased chance of success in beekeeping.
Minimum of 5 people must register for a lesson to take place, and a maximum of 10 people may participate in a group lesson.
BeeWeaver will provide protective gear if you do not have your own. Please do not bring hive tools, gloves, or smokers to reduce the risk of transferring bee diseases.
Minimum age is 6, and children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult
