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 Allen County Fairgrounds - 2726 Carroll Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46818.

February 24, 2024, from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. (Refreshments will be provided).

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!

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.
