Online Bee School

Welcome to the self-study version of the bee class. This class was held live in the early spring of 2021 and you will be viewing the recordings of the zoom class. In addition to the recordings, you may also want to print out the slide deck I use and make notes along with the class. The slide deck pdfs are set up so you can put them in a notebook for later references.

Please note that things in the beekeeping world change at a rapid pace, so I’m never surprised when I find that something I shared is now out of date. So if you find something like that, please let me know. Also, keep 2 things in mind:

  • It’s not uncommon for beekeepers to disagree on things. In fact, it’s pretty uncommon to find 2 beekeepers who agree on most things.
  • The bees adapt to their environment and the beekeeper is part of their environment. So what works for me may not work for you. Trust your bees to lead the way!

The book used for this class is “The Beekeeper’s Handbook” by Diana Summataro. If you purchase the book on Amazon through our link, a small portion of the sales will go toward maintaining our bee yard.
