Thinking about getting honeybees next spring? Now is the time to prepare. This one-day workshop will address all the questions aspiring beekeepers need to ask as they prepare to embark on this spiritual yet profoundly nature-bound journey. Beekeepers with one or two years’ experience will also find this a useful opportunity to take stock of their experiences to date, ask questions, and share insights.
Weather permitting, the day will include a visit to the Pfeiffer Center’s apiary, where we will open some hives and demonstrate techniques for working with bees.
Megan Durney is Head Gardener and principal beekeeper at the Pfeiffer Center in Chestnut Ridge, NY. Bill Day first learned beekeeping from Gunther Hauk at the Pfeiffer Center. He keeps bees at Blue Field Farm in Blauvelt, NY.
This one-day workshop runs from 9:00am to 5:00pm; fee: $95. Visit www.pfeiffercenter.org/workshops to register online.
