Beginner Bee School
Want to be a beekeeper but don't know where to start? The Bee Great beekeeping school is for you!
The school takes place at the Union Street Market at Electric Works (1620 Broadway Street, Ft Wayne, IN) on the mezzanine in the West Hall.
March 4, 2023, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.
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 for attendees!
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 feed bees, and hive inspections. You also get free mentoring for two years from the Bee Great beekeepers!
