We may go out to the hives in this class - this class should mostly be indoors, but it will be flexible based on the needs of the class. Please wear (or bring) closed-toed shoes with long socks (not ankle socks), long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt. Gloves are optional (Teacher Kendal Sager will have a pair or two on hand). Veils with helmets will be provided for each participant.

Students enrolled in the entire series will receive regular email updates about with tips and what they should be observing from their beehives. Enroll in the entire series and you will also receive a 10% refund! Series workshops are on 3/19, 4/16, 5/14 and September 2016. Contact the instructor any time if you have questions!
