Learn beekeeping fundamentals at the Round Rock Beekeeping Academy in Madison WI. This 2.5-hour class is for those wanting to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Although the class is designed mostly for those with little or no beekeeping knowledge or experience, persons with some limited experience are also encouraged to sign up.
The class is taught by beekeeper Nathan Clarke and covers a basic introduction to bees, beekeeping and hives, how-to information for keeping bees in Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter and disease and parasite management. Each class allows students the opportunity to suit up (bee suits provided), and gain hands-on experience at our onsite apiary.
Our integrated workshops teach participants all they need to know to completely assemble their own hives, populate the hives with honeybees, and harvest honey. They take this knowledge to the next step of purchasing their own bees and equipment, and establishing their own hives.
This class is being taught through a partnership with Round Rock Honey Beekeeping Academy.
Special Note: All participants must be at least 7 years old and are required to adhere to our dress code in order to participate. This class takes place outdoors. Please wear appropriate clothing and closed-toe footwear.
Urban Honey will be for sale after class, but is not included in the price of the class.
Meeting Location: North-East side of Madison, WI.
(Exact meeting location details will be provided upon purchase of tickets.)

I am sorry to say that both October Beekeeping Classes are canceled. It looks like a really bad storm system is coming through, and the entire Midwest is going to get hammered.
Please email email@example.com to reschedule in 2014.
Only two beekeeping classes are still open. If you have already purchased a ticket, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule one of these two classes.
