Very informative class touching on many facets of beekeeping. Tanya’s presentation was very detailed and she was more than happy to answer any and all questions, sharing the experience she has aquired over many years of beekeeping. The hands-on session in the beeyard with Tanya and Chuck was a very pleasant experience. Small groups, in a relaxed environment, allowed eveyone to get ample time, up-front and personal, with different hives, learning hive inspection, tool use, and general beekeeping skills. If you are interested in becoming beekeeper, or just want to learn about these amazing creature, then this class is a MUST! Thanks Tanya and Chuck! I had a great time!
