This body of work is a in depth apprenticeship to Apis mellifera and an opportunity for deep self exploration.
Students receive seven months of hands-on natural beekeeping techniques with contemporary adaptive methodology with bi-monthly meetings. Excellent opportunity to gain skills through the progression of the seasons, including spring buildup, summer honey production, and fall harvesting and proper preparation for over-wintering.
Prerequisite is successful completion of year one.
The second year is one of continued studies, service and activism.
