We start in February with a half-day equipment class to introduce you to all the gear you will need. Then in March, we hold a second half-day class to teach you about the biology of bees and how to start and maintain a healthy hive.
All classes take place on a Saturday, generally from 10 am to 2 pm. You can pay at the door (members get a discount), but the lowest prices are available to those who register and pay in advance. To get on the advance payment notification list, please send us an email now.
Occasionally, the SFBA also schedules apiary visits and intermediate or even advanced classes for experienced beekeepers. We also have regular discussions and demonstrations throughout the year at our monthly meetings. This is a great way to meet veteran beekeepers and newbies alike.
