It’s time for Bee School! Beginning and intermediate beekeeping classes for everyone (ages 13+) who wants to learn about honey bees and how to keep them! The beginner classes will be held on November 12, 19, and 26, and the intermediate classes will be held on March 16, 23, and 30. They will run from 630-9PM and will be held at the American Legion Hall at 15 Montauk Highway in Amagansett. The fee is $100 for each series of classes. A 50% deposit will secure your spot, with the balance due on the first night of class. If we don’t have enough interest in the beginners class, I may move the intermediate series to November, so please keep that in mind. We will run the classes with 10 or more students, with a limit of 35. Teenagers ages 13-19 are half price! For the classes, I provide pdf text books and other online resources. There are suggested texts you can purchase on your own as well. Yes, there will be homework and assignments, but you won’t bee in trouble if you don’t do the work! I also plan to offer a workshop, “Value Added Products from the Hive for Health and Wealth”. Stay tuned for details! In the classes, you will learn about honey bees and how to care for them, all the different beekeeping equipment, and so much more! Some of the topics we will cover include: a brief history of beekeeping; current events /research/ and innovations in beekeeping; the "Good Neighbor Policy"; the biology and life cycle of the honeybee; castes of bees and their roles in the colony, what to look for when examining a hive; when, what, and why to feed; equipment options; how to obtain bees; status of the colony; seasonal management; swarm control; splits; requeening a colony; and management of diseases and pests of honeybees. We will discuss products of the hive, capturing swarms and doing cutouts, beekeeping organizations and conferences, and other topics as per class interest. Also, I'm hosting a screening of the film The Pollinators ‪on Wednesday, November 6.‬ Please consider attending; it will be a fun and informative evening, starting with an intro and audience participation game! All students who attend the screening will get a special prize! The link to buy tickets to the show is listed as another event on this website. So who am I?
