If you’re thinking about starting a backyard beehive or are just curious about what’s involved with keeping bees, then this free introductory class, taught by UC Master Gardener Randy Fox, is for you. The class is designed for absolute beginners so no prerequisite knowledge is required. You can walk in knowing absolutely nothing about bees and walk out ready to get started with your own backyard beehive! I will teach you how the honey bee lives, discuss the everyday dynamics inside a beehive and tell you lots of practical information about how to set up your first beehive.

Topics include: — A brief history of the honey bee. — How to identify the Queen, Worker and Drone bees. — Understanding of the bee’s lifecycle, individual duties and contribution to the colony’s life. — The challenges that bees face while trying to survive in today’s environment. — What tools you need to properly maintain your hive and manage your bees.

Please arrive 15 minutes early for check-in or registration.
