BEGINNER BEEKEEPING SCHOOL:

Want to be a beekeeper but don't know where to start? The Bee Great beginner beekeeping school is for you!

SELECT FROM ONE OF THE FOLLOWING SCHOOLS.

The first school takes place at the Allen County Fairgrounds - 2726 Carroll Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46818. February 24, 2024, from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. (Lunch will be provided).

The second school takes place at Forest Lodge at 701 Cicero Road

You get a beginner beekeeping kit which includes a bottom board, 10 frame brood box, 10 frames with plasticell foundation, an inner cover, and a telescoping outer cover. Bees are NOT included. However, by attending the bee school, you will be eligible to buy a nuc of bees from Bee Great.  The hive is already assembled and painted, so you're ready to get started as soon as your bees arrive.

We will also have a drawing for a FREE nuc of bees at the Ft Wayne Schools and at the Noblesville School!

Confused? Don't worry, we'll teach you everything from the ground up about the hive included with the school. You'll also receive a 10% discount towards the purchase of all your beekeeping supplies like a smoker, hive tool, bee suit, etc. 

We'll start with a thorough description of the parts of the hive. Then we'll talk honey bee anatomy and behavior. We'll cover bee installation in the hive, how to use a smoker, and we'll share a calendar of steps to take throughout the year as a beekeeper. We'll also talk about feeding bees, and hive inspections. You also get free mentoring for two years from the Bee Great beekeepers!

 Space is limited, so sign up today!

NOTE: Each purchase includes admission for 2 people, but only one hive starter kit. If you want a kit for each person, you'll need to make two purchases for the full price.
