About This Event
Learn all about bees with Resident Farmer and Beekeeper Liesel. The class starts on The Workshop patio where you’ll get suited up in a protective beekeeping jacket and veil. You’ll learn about the parts of the hive, how to handle frames and gain insight on bee stages of development and their life cycles. During the workshop, you’ll also look at eggs and larvae, find queens, see how bees store nectar and honey, and see Farmer Liesel identify and address any hive problems in real-time.
Attendees are encouraged to wear light colored pants and closed toed shoes. No beekeeping experience is required. In the event of rain, hive checks will not be rescheduled. Attendees will be refunded.
