Backyard Beekeeping Basics

211 1st St, Decatur, AL 35601

Beekeeping is a growing hobby in Alabama. This workshop will show you what it takes to keep bees before you invest in equipment and bees. Topics will include bee biology, hive parts, equipment, when to expect honey, when and how to purchase bees, how much time you will need to devote to beekeeping, and how to prevent hive problems. There will be an observation hive on hand to get a look inside a beehive (weather permitting) as well as hive parts and equipment to see. The class is free, but please pre-register.
