Intro to Beekeeping

In this 6 week course, taught by Ellen Bell of Bell Farm, you will learn everything you need to know to get started keeping a hive of honeybees. Topics will include purchasing bees and equipment, how to install a package of bees, hive management throughout the year, disease and pest control, winter care, honey production, and more. The class is geared toward those who have never kept bees, but first year beekeepers will also find much to be gained from reviewing the basics. The class will also feature a number of guest speakers who will share important information about keeping bees in Iowa. Optional: You may purchase materials for the course, which includes a book and your first year’s membership in the Iowa Honey Producers Association.
