Introduction to Beekeeping
The Introduction to Beekeeping course is designed to teach the basics of beekeeping in the low, southwest desert of Arizona. The course runs approximately three hours and is split into two components: classroom education and hands-on experience. The classroom portion provides students with general knowledge of honey bee biology, standard beekeeping equipment, and best practices for colony management. Our beekeeping classes are hands-on experiences providing students a unique opportunity to suit up as a beekeeper and apply the knowledge and skills learned while assisting the Master Beekeeper instructor with hive inspections in the on-site apiary. Class sizes are limited to 10 people to ensure that all students have the ability to fully participate in the beekeeping experience.
