Bee 201 Hands-on: Build Your Own Hive
Have you wanted to learn how to build the hive boxes to save money and have the satisfaction of doing it yourself? Each student will assemble a box, assemble wood frames, and install beeswax foundation in the frames. This class is all hands-on and for people who already have bees or are getting them this spring. A super box with frames is exactly what you need in March to add to your hive for swarm prevention. A deep box or hive body is what you need if you are starting a new beehive. No experience in carpentry needed. Note that we will not be cutting out the box or frame pieces; we will just be assembling pieces that are sold pre-cut.
Instructor: Joan Weir is an accomplished carpenter & beekeeper. She teaches both throughout California.
This class is part of the Biofuel Oasis Urban Farm Series.
