Join Yard to Market Co-op at TreeHouse for an introduction to Beekeeping. We will learn the biology, behavior and domestication of the European Honey Bee. We will look at Langstroth hives as well as Top Bar hives and learn all the essential gear you need to get you going on the journey of beekeeping.
Our instructor John J. Swan owns Wicked Bee Removal as well as maintaining his own apiary and producing organic honey for local retailers. He is president of the Travis County Beekeepers association and is an advanced member of the Texas Master Beekeepers Program.
This class is aimed at backyard gardeners, homesteaders, urban and small farmers and anyone else interested in starting their own hives. Stick around after the class to shop TreeHouses’ selection of beekeeping equipment.
