March 17, 2021 webinar: To be or not to be a beekeeper

On March 17, 2021, I will be teaching a webinar for people thinking about becoming beekeepers. This will be a live class. A recorded video will be available to registered participants for approximately one week after the class. Details about the class, registration deadline, and how to register can be found below.

To be or not to be a beekeeper


With the growing interest in bees and various social media campaigns encouraging people to “save the bees,” the number of people who become beekeepers each year is rising. However, beekeeping is not easy, nor is it cheap. Many first-time beekeepers become frustrated, overwhelmed, and don’t make it through their first year.

This class is designed to help you decide whether beekeeping is really for you and will help set you up for success if you decide to pursue beekeeping. We will discuss challenges and rewards associated with beekeeping, as well as, alternatives that may be a better fit for your personal needs and goals. We will also discuss basic beekeeping-related information such as important beekeeping terms, different types of equipment, and valuable resources that will help you be successful on your beekeeping journey.
