    Default Im curious, has anyone gone to a weekend class by Leo Sharashkin

    I've a friend that would like to attend one of his 2 day classes, I'm leery, as it's $299.00, no refund if you cancel up to 3 weeks before the class. Has anyone here gone to one of his weekend classes, is it worth it? How many are usually in these classes, 20, 30?

    TIA
    Some days it's not even worth chewing through the restraints.

    Maybe cheaper and less risk to watch his videos.

    All of my opinions and suggestions are based on my five decades of actual beekeeping,
    not so much on book learning, watching YouTube videos nor reading internet sites.

    Just read his site, articles by him and about him, watch the vids, and read the book "Keeping bees with a smile" (if want to buy that; the original in Russian is a free PDF).
    That will will get you the same material and at your own pace.

    Crucial part - his results are reproducible at his location only as he is plugged into the local feral population.

    I think he is already booked solid but there is a good chance that with the COVID-19 they will be cancelled. Personally I would rather listen to talks about bees by someone like Michael Palmer who has made a living at it.
