Learn about hive placement considerations in urban and suburban areas, as well as how to order, assemble, and maintain tools and equipment. There will be a demonstration of assembling a Langstroth wooden hive and frames. We will visit the apiary at Hilltop Hanover Farm (weather permitting) and learn more about proper hive location and what bees need for full health and survival.
Hive and Apiary Set Up is the second class of a six-class series. Registration is $30 for each individual class, or $150 for all six classes.
