Beginning Practical Beekeeping Class available through HSU Extended Education:

Practical Beekeeping   Dick LaForge & Jeannine Kaprielian, Beekeepers

Honey bees pollinate the crops for about a third of the foods we eat, and produce honey and other products. The colonial social structure of bees allows us to observe, study and manage them in a way that is beneficial to us, to them, and to nature. These courses will provide the  information, and confidence you need to succeed as a backyard beekeeper.

In this online class, you will gain skills you need to keep honey bees for honey, pollination, other hive products, and enjoyment.  You will learn about honey bee biology, beekeeping equipment, and management techniques.  You will also have the opportunity to participate in our annual bulk bee order to purchase bees.

Required textbook: Beekeeping for Dummies5th edition, 2020, by Howland Blackiston.
