Learning by Doing

Posted on August 24, 2011 in Beekeeping Classes | Short Link

What an amazing experience this has been. Jenny and Richard have done a great job of consolidating their many years of experience into a four day class. I feel I have the knowledge and confidence to start my own bee colony and begin the “learning by doing” phase of beekeeping.

It is great to be part of this new group and have such great resources. I am also encouraged to see the gentleness and caring everyone has for the honey bees. Jenny and Richard’s affection for them is plain to see but I was happy to see the class have such a deep commitment to the bees.

Top Bar Hive at Jenny’s farm. A hive with a view--looking out to the ocean!

Looking in the window to see the bees.

Jenny explains what to look for in the hive.

Part 1: Jio and Jenny gently open up the hive.

Part 2: Jenny and Jio show us the honeycomb attached to the Top Bar.

The stars of the show!

Bees- our reasons for bee-ing!
