Beginning Beekeeping: Six Week Course
Greater Seacoast Permaculture Group
6 weeks (1/7, 1/14, 1/21, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11)
7 – 9 pm
The goal of the class will be to cultivate an understanding and respect for the amazing honey bee and learn how to get on the path to being a great bee steward! With an emphasis on natural methods, we will learn beekeeping terms, honey bee biology and behavior, equipment needed to get started, types of honeybees and how to get them, colony management and illness… and more! Class size will be limited so there will be lots of opportunities for questions and clarifications. Learning modalities will include: lecture, discussion, lots of visuals, and videos.
While we wouldn’t say that there is a specific “permaculture beekeeping” method, we will keep in touch with the ethics and principles of permaculture as we discuss choices in how to keep honey bees.
The class is going for 6 weeks (1/7, 1/14, 1/21, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11), with an optional 7th meeting (2/18) to watch and discuss “Queen of the Sun!”
