1 – 5 pm

If you are interested in bringing these amazing creatures into your landscape, come learn more. With an emphasis on natural methods, we will go over basic beekeeping terms, basic honeybee biology, equipment needed to get started, types of honeybees and how to get them. Products and services of the hive will be discussed. What to expect in terms of time and money input, and where to get more information will also be included.

The plan is for 3 hours of indoor presentation, show-and-tell, and question and answer. And, if the weather allows, we will spend about an hour looking in the hives together. If the weather is poor, I will have an indoor alternative learning experience planned!

Please wear or bring light colored clothing, and consider if you’d like long sleeves and pants and closed shoes if we get into the hives. If you happen to have or can borrow a bee suit or veil please do — I will have some for folks to borrow also.

We are charging on a sliding scale for this: $25-40 per person. To secure your space we will ask you to send a deposit of $10 by May 1 (details on where to send that will be emailed to you after you sign up). This workshop isn’t geared towards children, but older kids who want to work with bees are very much welcome!

Amy Antonucci has been keeping bees for honey and pollination since 2005 and has been involved with organic agriculture for over ten years. She gives talks at libraries, schools, has been interviewed on the radio about apiculture. She served as VP of the Seacoast Beekeepers Association of NH and organized their Bee School for a number of years.
