Whether you want to help "Save the Bees", have always been fascinated by honey bees, or would like to obtain an "Ag Exemption" on your 5-20 acres land using beekeeping as a qualifier, this is the "Introduction to Beekeeping"- Level 101 of our popular three-part "BECOMING A NATURAL BEEKEEPER SERIES" (BNB Series).
Attend all 3 levels in the BNB series and obtain a Natural Beekeeper Certificate from the Bee Mindful Bee School.
Space is limited, book early, and keep in mind that all 3 Levels in the Series take place one after the other the same day, so if you decide to attend all three (spur-of-the moment walk-ins welcome at all levels), you may even obtain your Natural Beekeeper Certification the same day!

The first step on your journey to become a beekeeper, or if you are just curious about bees or beekeeping, this 2hr theory-only beginner class will teach you the basics about the wonderful world of honey bees, and introduce the following concepts through slides and equipment props:
- natural beekeeping basics
- protective clothing
- equipment types and their pros and cons for our area
- how and where to get your bees
- sustainable apiary setup
- basics of bee biology
