Beginning Beekeeping Informational Class

January 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

A Beginning Beekeeper set of four classes will be offered at the Dordt University Agriculture Stewardship Center in classroom ASC 103 on Tuesday evenings starting on January 4, 2022 at 6:30 PM. The class will conclude between 8:30 – 9:00 PM depending on questions and progress in the class.

The first class is informational and is FREE of charge. The title of the first class is “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Beekeeping” and will provide an overview of what needs to be considered if one wants to begin beekeeping. Costs of beekeeping, hive locations, bee acquisition, and much more will be presented at the first class. There will be sufficient time allocated for answering participant questions. The decision to keep bees requires serious thought and long-term thinking and planning.

There will be a fee for the additional classes on January 11, 18, and either February 8 or 15 for the participants who, after learning about what beekeeping entails, want to stay in the course and continue with their desire to begin keeping bees.

If interested in coming to the first informational class, please pre-register by emailing Dr. Duane Bajema at duane.bajema@dordt.edu or helen.zeutenhorst@dordt.edu.
