Smith-Gilbert Gardens Offering Beekeeping Workshops

Smith-Gilbert Gardens is offering beekeeping classes from January 21st through August 19th, 2017. The classes are targeted towards the aspiring apiary enthusiast and will introduce students to beekeeping as well as offer support to participants for their first year.

By next spring, studends can have their own hive and bees buzzing around their garden – a sure sign of a healthy garden. The course is divided into two modules. Becoming a beekeeper and running your own hive will require you to take Module I and II.

Course fees are $90 per person for Module I, $180 for Module II, or $250 for both modules. Smith-Gilbert Gardens members receive a 10% discount. Please note! Additional expenses for protective equipment, hives, frames, and nucs are not included in the course fee. You may register via their website at
