I'm totally sold on the gospel of bees and I think two hives is amazing!! I want the business to continue to succeed so here are some suggestions that are specific to the experience and some ideas: + Repaint the learning room. Find someone to turn it into a hive and/or represent the various stages of a hive. you can point to those as learning tools + General look/feel of the room should be upgraded - better furniture up front (not necessarily expensive), a stand for the computers, non-ziploc for the combs, etc. + Sitting on those bar stools for 2 hours is pretty uncomfortable. maybe cushions or other chairs with backs and cushions + Send around a fleshed out presentation after the event to connect with your audience again + The initial email should prep people for what they'll learn in class, encouraging them to bring notebooks and pens, something to drink etc. + If you keep the chalkboard, rehang it so its straight and get a better chalk marker Other ideas: + Do a 10% discount for people who sign up for the next class/service right then and there + Host a food blogger/influencer class that's less scientific but that talks through the hive to table process. also have one for chefs + Connect with a local artist and see if you can get them to specialize in painting beehives + Create place settings for the class - include the brochure, social handles, a honey straw (?) or a featured recipe and temporary tattoos (like the ones Tara has)

I think for my first beekeeping class Tara kept it extremely informative with lots of resources without being overwhelming. I like that fact she is always willing to be a great resource in the future. I am looking forward to taking more classes and learning a lot more from her as I start my own hives.
