Catch the buzz at PEEC's beekeeping classes

-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

Wondering what is the sweetest class that the Pajarito Environmental Education Center will be offering this summer? Without a doubt, it is the classes on beekeeping with local honey man Scott Mills of Mariposa Apiaries in Los Alamos.

The first of the two classes is offered for those who are interested in learning more about honeybees and beekeeping in general. Topics in this two-hour introductory course will include life inside the beehive, the honeybee life cycle, the importance of honeybees, and protective clothing and basic equipment needed for getting started.

This first class will be offered from 10 a.m.- noon Saturday. The tuition is $10 or $9 for PEEC members. A video about bees will be available for those wishing to bring a lunch and stay longer.

The second class, offered July 26, is a workshop designed for those interested in digging deeper into the world of honeybees and beekeeping. The eight-hour interactive class will include a classroom session and practical hands-on time at an apiary.

The morning session will cover classroom topics including the basic woodenware parts of the hive, honeybee health, deciding where to place a hive and how to obtain bees. All participants will need to read “Beekeeping for Dummies” by Howland Blackiston before attending the class.
