How To Become a Beekeeper

You’re probably already making your own bread and butter in COVID quarantine, so why not learn to make honey as well?

Two upcoming Zoom workshops will offer an introduction to beekeeping. 

In three weekly classes beginning Thursday, Feb. 18, at 6 p.m. and ending Thursday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m., Berkshire Botanical Garden will offer online classes with Chris Wellens, the former head beekeeper for Berkshire Botanical. Suggested reading: “The Beekeeper’s Handbook” by Diana Sammataro and Alphonse Avitabile (an award-winning bee specialist from Bethlehem, Conn.) and “The Backyard Beekeeper” by Kim Flottum.

After that, on Sunday, March 7, at 2 p.m. Dan Carr of Beavertides Farm in Falls Village, Conn., will talk about bee basics in a talk sponsored by the David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village. Register at www.HuntLibrary.org, on the library’s Facebook page, or by calling the library at 860-824-7424.
