Hi, I’m David Burns and for over a decade I’ve taught beekeeping classes here at my training center in central Illinois. So many beekeepers from around the country have expressed their disappointment that they live too far away to take one of my classes. So I rolled up my sleeves to now make my classes available as online courses.
