Eastern Shore Food Lab

Beekeeping 101

Put on your bee veil and peek inside a hive. Develop an intimate understanding of our insect allies and strategies for ensuring their survival. Study bee anatomy, nutrition and colony behavior, and learn how to establish a hive. 

Hosted in the Eastern Shore Food Lab, the Beekeeping 101 course is offered biweekly for seven classes. Through a combination of videos, discussion, gear assembly, cooking, and apiary practicum, you’ll use all of your senses to serve as ambassadors for pollinators.
