Re: Beekeeping with young kids?
My son Jack did beekeeping with me some from the time he was 7. Like others said interest was on and off but mostly off or not interested. He always enjoyed helping extract honey though. He is now 14 almost 15 and over the winter he got interested in bees and beekeeping despite me kind of losing interest. I was considering selling my few hives. He had the idea to do beekeeping as a part time job and he bought 3 nucs with his own lawn mowing money, caught a couple of swarms, and did a couple of splits. So I am really surprised now we have a yard full of bees again. I am helping him now instead of him helping me it feels like. I am hoping since he has invested his own money he will stick with it. I did provide most of the boxes although they were just empty boxes I had since I had been scaling back and not replacing dead outs over the last couple of years.
Luke 24:42 - And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and honeycomb. And Jesus took it, and did eat it before them.
