BEE EDUCATED! BEE RESPONSIBLE!
If you are interested in keeping honey bees, be sure to educate yourself before making this important commitment. Beekeeping practices are different region to region and include various hive styles, a number of different species to work with and techniques that are specific to your climate. Keeping bees is a decision we make to somewhat domesticate the species. If you choose to do so, please do your homework. Keeping bees is different than allowing a swarm to live in your hollow tree or hanging a mason hive. There is work to be done, pests to maintain and beekeeping is a very hands on and rewarding experience if done correctly. Give the bees the best chance to thrive by educating yourself and others.
Classes and workshops are listed under the education tabs. Follow our social media or subscribe to our monthly newsletter for upcoming educational resources and tips. Visit the resources tab for education links, conferences, webinars, articles and clubs in the tristate area.
Please join our Facebook Group "Blooming Beez" where we connect with nearby beekeepers in the Hudson Valley to create local community of resources and beekeepers on all levels.
