Beekeeping Classes 2014
New England Beekeeping is offering two 5 week courses in the basics of beekeeping which is designed to interest
not only seasoned beekeepers but those individuals interested in starting this fascinating hobby.
You will learn the latest techniques of helping beehives survive mites, disease, and a Middlesex County winter.
You will also learn about beekeeping equipment, hive management, buying and installing bees into a hive, where to place a hive, and harvesting honey, pollen, propolis and beeswax.
A sixth class will be held in the field and we will
open an overwintered hive -- time and date TBD. Your registration fee includes a text on beekeeping, The Beekeepers
Handbook, by Diana Sammataro. Rick is currently President of the Massachusetts State Beekeepers Association and Owner
of New England Beekeeping and Carlisle Honey. He currently runs 500 hives in the New England states.
