*Education sessions and field day workshops are currently on hold while I update and create new materials that reflect my learnings from the Cornell University Master Beekeeping program. 

INTERN PROGRAM

Come experience the world of bees during the 2024 bee season! This unique experience provides hands-on learning in the bee yard in exchange for work related to bees. 

  1. Learning: Join me in the hives to learn about honey bees and best beekeeping practices. Topics include honey bee biology, equipment needs, hive location and set up, beekeeping basics, swarm management, managing pests and diseases and more.
  2. Working: Come prepared to work and get your hands dirty! Jobs may include equipment building, cleanup and prep, honey extraction, wax rendering, feeding the bees or labelling and jarring honey — to name a few.

Commitment is three learning days and three working days. This reciprocal opportunity is limited to five people.
