Learn all about bees and beekeeping from Mad Urban Bees in Madison, WI. This 6-hour class is for those wanting to learn more about bees and beekeeping. The class is designed for those with little or no beekeeping knowledge and for those with some beekeeping experience.
The class is taught by Mad Urban Bees owner 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. This class teaches participants all they need to know to completely assemble their own hives, populate their hives with honeybees, and harvest honey.
This class will have lots of visual aids, hands-on props, and handouts, and will prepare you for your first year of beekeeping:

Mad Urban Bees LLC will be participating in the Isthmus Food and Wine Festival this Friday and Saturday, October 18-19. Tickets are $40.00, and the list of exhibitors is huge. This looks like an amazing event. Hope to see you there!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to reschedule in 2014.
Only two beekeeping classes are still open. If you have already purchased a ticket, please email me at email@example.com to schedule one of these two classes.
