Honeybees are amazing creatures. Have you ever considered what it might be like to have your own hives of bees. You could become a beekeeper! Getting started or even knowing if this is the right fit for you may seem a bit over whelming. Luckily here in Chautauqua County we have some generous and very knowledgeable bee keepers. Dennis and Laura LaMonica have offered to share their expertise in as part of the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s fall L.E.A.F. program.
Our Introduction to Bee Keeping workshop will inform you of all you need to know to make an educated decision about how and if you want to start a hive of your own. The emphasis of the presentation will be informing potential beekeepers about what to expect, how to prepare and what is required of the beekeeper. 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. This workshop will focus on natural beekeeping practices. So, even if you have read a few books, taken some other classes or already started keeping bees, this class will still have a lot to offer you.
Taking a beekeeping class is essential for today's beekeeper. There is no need to try it on your own, let us help welcome you to beekeeping!
