Learn the basics of hobby beekeeping and go into the winter with a full hive.  Instead of starting with a package or nuc in the spring and trying to build it up enough to survive the winter, you can purchase a complete hive with 2 deeps of live bees.  All you need to do is feed them to prepare for the winter and be ready for the spring nectar flow.  In this series of classes you will learn about how to be a hobby beekeeper, what are the parts of the hive, diseases, pests and treatments, how to extract and bottle honey along with hands on experience in hives with live bees.
