Beekeeping Classes 2018

New England Beekeeping is offering two 5 week courses, instructed by Rick Reault, in the basics of beekeeping which is designed to interest not only seasoned beekeepers but those individuals interested in starting this fascinating hobby. You will learn the latest techniques of helping beehives survive mites, disease, and a Middlesex County winter. You will also learn about beekeeping equipment, hive management, buying and installing bees into a hive, where to place a hive, and harvesting honey, pollen, propolis and beeswax.

A sixth class will be held in the field and we will open an overwintered hive -- time and date TBD. Your registration fee includes a text on beekeeping, "The Backyard Beekeeper" by Kim Flottum.
