If you’re thinking about starting a backyard beehive or are just curious about what’s involved with keeping bees, then this is a great introductory class for you. The class is designed for absolute beginners so, no prerequisite knowledge is required. You can start watching it even if you know absolutely nothing about bees and by the time you finish, you’ll be ready to get started with your own backyard beehive! Hilary Kearney of Girl Next Door Honey will teach you: how the honey bee lives and why that information is vital to becoming an excellent beekeeper. She will also discuss different hive designs, what tools to buy, how to place your hive, how to acquire bees, honey harvesting methods, and common hive pests. Plus, tons of practical information about how to be successful as a beekeeper, what to look for during inspections and how to avoid common mistakes.
This class will focus on natural beekeeping practices which are often the opposite of what is presented in most beekeeping books. So, even if you have read a few books, taken some other classes or already started keeping bees, this class still has tons to offer. The combination of lecture-style still images and fascinating footage alongside Hilary’s entertaining narration will keep you engaged and learning.
