The beekeeping class started end of last year, but I wasn't a part of it because another beekeeper had promised to teach them. But he dropped out and then they found me on the internet. This season is the beginning for me. I worked with the project manager this winter helping her to order all supplies needed and basically going over what we will cover this coming year. Due to holidays, so many illnesses (me
)etc. We really just began a couple of months ago. I met with the kids only twice so far, but have met with the project manager many times.
It is really mostly hands on in this class. Whenever the hives need to be worked, we will call all the kids to come over.
I am truly loving it and hope I can be of help to the kids.
