Join Corwin Bell of BackYardHive.com in Colorado for two extraordinary classes on natural beekeeping at Nash’s Farm Store, 4681 Sequim-Dungeness Way in Dungeness, on Saturday, April 5 (Beginner) and Sunday, April 6 (Intermediate), from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Each class costs $75. Participants may take both for $125. Preregistration is required at BackYardHive.com.

The beginner class will include basic bee ecology and communication, why they are a “super-organism” and the importance of honeybee genetic diversity. Hive set-up, obtaining bees and catching a swarm also will be covered. Bell will demonstrate how to work with bees in a gentle manner so that a relationship is formed.

The intermediate level is for graduates of the beginner class and for those who already have their own hives. It includes in-depth relationships with bees and the intimate workings of the colony and brood nest. Participants will increase their confidence interacting with the bees and learn about queen-less hives, over-wintering and extracting products.

Interested parties must pre-register at BackYardHive.com.
