BEE CLASS will discuss the wonders of the honey bee, the basics of beekeeping, bee gardens, bee pests and disease. We will review equipment needed and have an example of all equipment present at the talk.
HIVE BUILD will consist of building the 4 main hive bodies of the hive and bringing home a complete finished hive of: Metal Telescoping outer cover, inner cover, 2-10 frame hive bodies with frames, 2-10 frame honey supers with frames and a screened bottom board.
The Class is taught by Lindsey Drought, Droughtville Farms Bee Supply AND by Pete Poli, Humdinger Honey Works. They are the former President Elect and President of the Racine/Kenosha Beekeepers association (Racine Kenosha Beekeepers Association Page). They have been teaching classes for a few years and use a great fundamental teaching program to start the art of bee keeping. Pete and Lindsey both keep bees using top bar and traditional Langstroth. Instructors have experience in using honey to make lotions, soaps and lip balm.
**We will be serving Pizza, Soda and HONEY Ice Cream!**
