ABOUT THIS CLASS
Day in the Apiary Workshop is a 1 day class from 8:30am-11am Central time. Held almost exclusively in the bee yard with an emphasis on inspections, being able to identify the queen/drone/workers and the ability to know problems, diseases or pests in the hive. Participants are encouraged to have kept hives for a minimum of one year but not required. Participants must wear appropriate protective clothing in the yard. Even if you are superman, you are required to wear long pants, closed toe shoes and hat with veil (or beekeeping jacket/suit). In case of rain, the class still meets in the Training Center and you will be given a date to come back for the outside portion of the class.
You may cancel a reservation up to 10 days prior to the class; after that there are no refunds for cancellations.
Please place any pick up orders at least 1 week prior to the class.
