The Upper Valley Campus (UVC) is offering Spring Beekeeping for Beginners course on Saturday, April 21 from 1-4pm in the UVC gardens. To pre-register online go to www.napavalley.edu/commedreg. This course is perfect for those who have little or no beekeeping experience who seek more knowledge and practical hands-on skills in order to begin owning and caring for their own honeybee colonies. Designed primarily for those wishing to explore beekeeping, gain understanding about honeybee behavior, and learn options for the management of honeybee colonies, this two hour class is also an excellent opportunity for people with prior beekeeping experience to refresh and hone their beekeeping skills while gaining knowledge of the latest information on beekeeping options. Led by Jon Sevigny, longtime beekeeper, beekeeping mentor, and lead for the Napa Valley Beekeeper's Association, this engaging mix of hands-on activities and lecture includes essential beekeeping topics and how-to-skills: the importance of bees, honeybee biology basics, beekeeping equipment, beekeeping resources and how to connect to the local beekeeping community. This Libguide is just one of the many resources available to support students taking this course.
