Tom Minser, owner of Nature’s Nectar is here to help you get started in Beekeeping so you’ll be ready to go next year!  You do not need to have prior beekeeping experience.  This class will tell you what items you will need to start beekeeping and strategies for keeping your bees healthy and successful.

Topics to include:

  • Purchasing equipment and bees
  • Hiving packages
  • Management practices
  • Honey production
  • How to overwinter your bees
  • Overview of the Varroa mite and how to treat for them.

What others are saying about this class!

Really appreciated Tom and Jessica being so open and inviting to talking about bees! Learned so many new things that I haven’t learned from other bee classes. Can’t wait for the next class they offeredMMFS Student in Early 2021

(Note: This class will be online via Zoom, not in person—a link will be sent prior to the class.)

Online Class General Information:

  • Each registration is for one “device” (one computer, tablet, phone).  This is to ensure we don’t have more people registered than the instructor is comfortable with having in a class.  Please be respectful of this guideline and purchase multiple class spots if more than one person from your household is interested in attending.
  • You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which to access the online class.  Please arrive 10 minutes before class begins, to ensure your connection and device are ready when the class begins.
  • Each class will be held using Zoom technology.  You will receive a link and a password and information on how to log on,  prior to the class.  You will be able to view and ask questions during the class.

General Age Policy:
All classes are for adults (18+) unless otherwise noted.

Class Minimums:
Be aware we may cancel 5 days before class date if a minimum number of registrations not reached. We work to balance teachers' need to plan for a class with students' busy schedules -- not an easy task. Please register as early as possible!
