If you're interested in bees and want to learn more about how to become a backyard beekeeper, this Bee School seminar will be a great tool to help you get started. Experienced beekeepers and mentors from the Portland Urban Beekeepers club will be providing instruction and training, and will help you through the common questions and concerns of a beginner beekeeper. How much space do you need? What kinds of equipment? How much will it cost? What can you expect your first year? How and where do you get bees? And so much more!
Bee School will be held at St Michael & All Angels Church.
