Natural Beekeeping class in Carol Stream, IL (starts 10/16/13)
The Carol Stream (IL) Park District is advertising a natural beekeeping class on its website (see below). I didn't see it mentioned in this forum, so I thought I'd post it for anyone who might be interested. Thanks!
Natural Beekeeping - Carol Stream Park District
Come learn why more people are turning to natural, treatment-free beekeeping methods to save time and money, and produce healthier, locally-adapted honey bees. Classes cover basic honey bee biology and behavior, fundamental beekeeping skills and equipment, hive assembly and maintenance, honey extraction, and seasonal tasks. If conditions permit, students may attend an optional field trip next April to observe a bee package installation. This class fulfills the Hanover Park Community Apiary's instructional requirement for new beekeepers.
