INTRODUCTION TO BEEKEEPING LEVEL 1

Honeybees are very tricky. Honey doesn’t make them stick. Find out how you can keep your own honeybees, collect your own sweet stickiness, enrich your garden, and save the world, all right in your own backyard. This course will explain the basics of beekeeping such as: equipment you will need, how to use the equipment, where and how to get bees and hives, where bees can be kept, what to do each month of the year, how to harvest honey, how to encourage native  bees, and everything else you need to know to decide whether you want to keep bees and how to get started if you do.
