Specializing in sustainable beekeeping using organic methods, Thank Nature’s expert beekeepers helm three-hour classes designed to teach students how to start and sustain their own bee colony with eco-friendly processes. To kick off the workshop, a hive guru will familiarize participants with the honeybee and the origins of beeswax, which, despite popular opinion, was not first discovered in the ear canals of petulant grade-schoolers. Students leave with the knowledge necessary to begin harvesting their own honey, learning placement of the hive and how to lure local bees to create an organic backyard colony or how to form a bee army to help to kick out already existing backyard colonies of 17th-century Redcoats.
