    Excellent article
    Im a new beekeeper, have been studying, researching, watching videos and talking to experienced beeks. I live in laredo,tx where there is no local resources, no beekeeping association and almost no local beekeepers. I would like to teach a basic class, to introduce bk in my area. To make people aware of the benefits of this culture. Any advice?? Im planning on offering a free class at the local community college and university. Any plan that u recommend or topics to cover? Any resources that i can borrow?

    Thanks for sharing your article

    Good point. I could emphasize that more I think.

    Laredrone, how long have you been beekeeping? When I teach, I like to first spend time on how bees live without a beekeeper. I think it helps new beeks make decisions when they have a strong understanding of the natural workings of a hive. After that, I think another good teaching strategy is to look at your mistakes and teach others to avoid them. Good luck!

    i have been a beekeeper for less than a year, i did a lot of theory and have watched hundreds of videos. last year i did my first removal with very little experience and it came out ok. it turned into a strong colony that i still have. i did a second removal later this past october and they are doing ok, had to give em a new queen cause they were queenless. I am not very experienced but i really want to start a beekeeping community in my area, we have long summers and sunny days and multiple flow seasons with a variety of plants. My plan in to teach the very basics to create a community and from there learn together, attend classes and learn from each other. i will attend some classes in austin,tx with great experienced bks maybe i can get more advice from them

    thanks
