This six-part course, which will meet on the fourth Saturday of each month through June, will offer an introduction to honeybees and will discuss the tools and supplies needed to become a beekeeper. “Beekeeping for Beginners” will be directed by Lawrence DuBose, Ph.D., who has guided volunteer beekeepers at Kline Creek Farm for almost 30 years. Participants will gain hands-on experience in starting and caring for a hive and extracting and processing honey.
