The Hives at Hale Farm: Is Beekeeping for You?

Fee: $20

Have you ever considered beekeeping? This is a craft that is exceedingly popular; however, beekeeping is taking care of livestock. Sign up for this one and one-half hour class where we will introduce you to the hives at Hale Farm & Village and give you detailed information on the time and money commitments involved. This is your chance to determine if you’ve got the buzz! If not, that’s ok – there are plenty of other, even more important ways to help bees that we’ll tell you about.

Attendees are advised to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, with high socks so as the pant legs can be tucked into the socks. Veils and gloves will be provided, but attendees must wear a wide-brimmed hat.  Presented by the beekeepers of Urban Honey Bee
