“The ABCs of Honey Bees”
Thinking about picking up beekeeping or want to gain more knowledge as a beekeeper? Plan to attend the upcoming “ABCs of Honey Bees” course offered by Case Western Reserve University’s Squire Valleevue and Valley Ridge Farms.
In conjunction with the Farm Administration, Richard Manley, University Farm’s beekeeping consultant for more than five years, will teach the course Saturday, March 18, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
He will cover all aspects of beginning beekeeping, honeybee biology and diseases, and hive management.
Weather permitting, students will be able to participate in hives inspection, including observation of brood, honey and pollen cells.
The course is $48 per participant. A minimum of six participants will be required to offer course.
