Greenhorns Presents: BUZZ BUZZ Natural Beekeeping with Tucka B

August 26, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - August 27, 2018 @ 1:00 pm

Interested in natural beekeeping? It seems like summer, but winter is coming! Learn to prepare your bees for the long dark days by starting early.

This course will cover natural beekeeping basics, observation practices and bee walks as well as lecture in the hall. Using live hives and working directly with the bees, Tucka will teach us how to complete a live late-summer inspection and will give relevant advice and tips on feeding, treating and other fall activities. Please bring your protective gear as well as an inquiring mind. Stings do happen!

About our Teacher, Tucka.
It all started with the Natural Beekeeping Trust in England, where a swarm flew away with her heart. Since then, she’s worked with a series of mentors, most notably the bees themselves. Tucka currently raises queens in box hives in upstate NY, and works for Mike Palmer – legendary beekeeper in upstate VT. Her operation is strongly influenced by the survivor stock and radical ideas of Sam Comfort from anarchy apiaries.
