In the hurley burley of trying to finish the classrooms in time and get ready for spring, I am sadly behind. Our class schedule will be up soon! Caroline and I will be meeting this week to finalize the Yoga class details and chat about some really fantastic retreat type offerings she will be doing. Thanks for being patient - we're tackling one mountain at a time. Namaste.

Basic Beekeeping Class 

Learn about the basic equipment, tools, costs, legal issues, what to expect when harvesting your honey, resources and references.This class is the basis for our series. To become a beekeeper you need to know what you are getting into, while beekeeping is enjoyable it is also very complex and many folks jump in without regard to some of the realities involved. This class is a MUST for people considering beekeeping. Students receive a beekeeping book along with handouts. 

We offer a class session just about every month - pick one that works for you!

$45 person or $60 couple

February 28th from  9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

(Snowdate is March 14th 10-2 Just in case!)
