Bringing Home the Bees
Sunday April 24 10am – 3pm $50 taught by Jacqueline Freeman
We’re not jumping the gun. Last year swarm season unexpectedly began in March and most of us weren’t ready. Spend a fascinating day learning about the magic of the swarm, and how to catch a swarm easily and safely.We’ll put together a swarm kit, show you how to work with swarms in all kinds of situations, and you’ll learn about using bait hives, too. Join local swarm lists and bring home your own good strong local bees. **Bring your lunch to class.
