When asked about the best way to get started in beekeeping, many of our members will recommend the in person trainings offered at the U of MN campus. As the pandemic lingers on, Covid-19 has again forced a change to regular plans.
In 2021, the Year 1 and Year 2 ‘Beekeeping in a Northern Climate’ classes were combined into a single online event. It will again be offered in this format for 2022, with the opening Zoom session to take place on January 15th, 2022. If you are interested in formal and structured training to get started in keeping, or just to update and enhance your skills, we recommend that you consider this opportunity. There is a $175 registration fee to participate in this training program. You will be issued a certificate of completion at the end of the program.
