Beginning Beekeeping

Adults

If you've considered beekeeping as a source for fresh honey, or to support a population of important pollinators, join us to learn the basics to get started!

We'll start with setting up a hive and how to fill it. (Where do bees come from? Can a person buy them or just build a hive and hope they show up?) We'll also cover dividing hives, how to gather that sweet honey, caring for the bees in winter and recognizing impacts from pesticides, among other apiary concerns. We'll also have plenty of time for questions!

Free and open to the public, no registration required. Call 715-257-7292 for more information.
