Christina was so amazing and knowledge about beekeeping and also about how they are so important in our agricultural system. Literally, without bees, we wouldn't be able to grow crops and be without food! Also, I've learned the dire need to keep bees healthy and treat them if they have varroa mites, which is a parasitic mites that feeds on the honeybees themselves. Basically, help honeybees and they help us. Everyone can't live without honeybees! Also, she inspired me to plant native plants and flowers, I was able to go on National Wildlife Federation website to go see. This class was very educational, fun, and interactive class and all the students were kind taking turns to see the honeybees up close. The tasting was delicious too and ended up taking some honey home. Highly recommend, Christina was awesome!

This was a great beginners class. She was knowledgeable and relaxed. if you're just barely thinking about doing beekeeping or looking for a fun, up close experience with bees i highly recommend this class. It makes for a very informal relaxed date too!

Wow, better than we expected and our expectations were high. Christina our instructor and beekeeper extraordinaire, was very friendly and easy to follow. She encouraged questions and never at once made you feel as if we had to rush or seemingly dumb questions were unwelcome. The honey and Pollen was amazing also!

The tour and information provided was exceedingly interesting, and well worth your time and energy! The only reason that I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because it would have been really helpful to know that this is not the type of location that one might expect for a beekeeping experience. The location is in an old warehouse in a sketchy area, with no signage. We were there about 15 minutes early, and the gates were not open yet, so we questioned if we were even in the right place. Clear signage and a description of the location and what to expect would have been really helpful and appreciated.

Highly recommend this class to familiarize yourself with bees. Christina the instructor is a wonderful teacher and incredibly experienced and knowledgeable about bees, beeskeeping, and the impact on plants/farming in general. It was a pleasure to learn from her and also an amazing experience to try hands-on beeskeeping!
