Learn about bees and what it takes to keep a hive of your own. This 5-class course will cover everything from basic bee biology and behavior, to setting up and taking care of a hive over the course of a season.

This course will prepare you to establish a hive in an urban environment like a rooftop, balcony or backyard. Beekeeping is easier and more rewarding than you may think and an excellent hobby to get into in the city.

Classes 1-4 will be held in Long Island City at Green Desk at Northern Blvd and 35th St. Class 5 will be held in Sunset Park, Brooklyn at the historic Green-Wood Cemetery. If you are not able to make it for any classes, we will make accommodations to get a make-up date.

**Discounts are not available for classes.

This course is recommended for ages 13+, however, children are welcome as long as they do not disturb the other attendees. Please note that kids' pricing is not available. All tickets are general admission.
