Only 2 days left to register!

only 4 seats left

This class is designed to stimulate interest and questions about beekeeping as a hobby or to help with pollination. It covers what is needed, where to locate bee hives, where to buy them, what it costs and how to care for bees so they survive the winter. Many join the class because they are aware of the huge importance and decline of honeybees and other pollinators and just want to help. Learn about the fascinating hobby of beekeeping, pollinate your garden and grow your own honey! Makeup class (if needed) 04/23/19.

Peter Peter Cowin is President of Penobscot County Beekeepers’ Association and a member of the Maine State Beekeepers’ Association Swarm Team. He has grown his hobby into a cottage business known as “Hampden Honey”. Peter also writes a monthly column “The Bee Whisperer’s Diary” in the Bangor Daily News.
