BK105 with KT Thompson - Spring 2022
Monday Evenings on Zoom & 1 Saturday in the Apiary
The Beekeeping 105 course is taught by KT Thompson in four parts on Zoom from 6:00pm-8:30pm on Monday Evenings February 28, March 7, March 21, & March 28 (registrants will receive meeting link and details via e-mail after registration is complete & payment is received) & one Saturday in the Apiary pending weather, but tentatively scheduled for the end of April/first half of May - we will solidify the day in the apiary as the date approaches.
KT Thompson is a high school science teacher in the master beekeeping program and has taught honey bee biology & beekeeping to adults and high school students both in person and online.
Beekeeping 105 overlaps somewhat with Dan Rau's Beekeeping 101, but is meant to be its own class for beekeepers wanting to advance their understanding of their bees and the art of beekeeping. It is appropriate for folks who've had bees for a few years as well as NEW beekeepers who are interested. Topics will include: introduction to the honey bee, beekeeping equipment, beekeeping as an animal husbandry, working with bees, health concerns & basic management, seasonal colony changes & management, class member choice topic presentations, and hive inspections & monitoring/record keeping.
This class is meant for beginner/apprentice level beekeepers and has been approved as apprentice level education that will help you qualify for the Colorado Master Beekeeper Program, if you'd like (http://coloradobeekeepers.org/education/general-information-and-applications/).
- The minimum registration for this class to run is 5.
- Payment is due at time of registration (absolutely MUST be RECEIVED BEFORE class starts) - for payment options, please see below.
