Upcoming On-Farm | Bee101 Become a Beekeeper Workshops

All these workshops have exactly the same material, same beekeeper supplies included and same hands-on portions, regardless whether it is the weekend bootcamp or the 6-week course. One is simply a full weekend bootcamp and the other 6 Thursday evenings and 2 Saturday mornings since weather in Florida is hot and unpredictably rainy in the summers.
