January 10 - June 13, 2016

Beekeeping Series @ The Lazy B Farm

Cost: $200 (total of 6 classes)

The Lazy B Farm
Statham, GA

The motivation for this series is to equip those who are serious about beekeeping as a hobby and want to acquire their own bees.

Currently, there are only 1/2 of the beekeepers that there were 25 years ago.  And yet, we depend upon bees for every third bite of food we consume.  The need for beekeepers is greater now than ever.

We will begin with the very basics of beekeeping and build upon that knowledge with each class.  Weather permitting, we will be working in the bee yard for a portion of each class.

There will be 6, 3-hour classes in this series, starting promptly at 9 am and finishing at noon.  If the morning class fills, we will have an afternoon class which will meet from 1pm – 4pm. The classes will begin in January and end in June with the Honey Harvest.

Class I:  ( January 10th )  Honey Bee Biology; Equipment, Tools and Clothing; Apiary Location; Codes and Regulations; Honey Processing Houses; Beekeeping Products and Services

Class II:  ( February 7th )  Feeding your Bees; Foraging Plants for Bees

Class III:  ( March 14th )  Yearly Management of your Apiary

Class IV:  (April 4th)  Installation of Nucs and Packages; Brood Diseases

Class V: (May 9th)  Adult Diseases; Parasites

Class VI: (June 13th)  Honey Harvest!  You will learn by doing.  We’ll cover three different ways to remove bees from your super frames, and then take the supers to the garage to begin the extraction process.  Each student will leave with a jar of honey.
