Bee 201 Hands-on: Build Your Own Hive

Sunday | March 16, 2014 | 10:00 am — 1:00 pm

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.

Pre-purchase tickets and Deep Super Box (Hive Body) online.

Cost: $68 for a Super Box, $77 for a Deep Super Box (includes instruction and materials to make box and 10 frames).
