Introduction to Bees and Beekeeping

Considering beekeeping to earn extra money? Then this two day class is for you! The class is taught by Midwest Master Beekeeper members and will focus on the principles of beekeeping. You will learn about the history of beekeeping, honey bee biology, plant and pollinator relationships, and essential equipment and requirements for raising bees. By the end of this class, you will be ready to have your own colony and be able to help experienced beekeepers with their hives.

June 18 and 20, must attend both classes



Written by Dr. Moneen Jones, Director, Missouri Pollinator Conservancy Program

Currently, I manage two non-profits, the Missouri Pollinator Conservancy Program and the Midwest Master Beekeeper Program. Most recently, I was the Research Entomologist at the University of Missouri's Delta Research Center located in Portageville, MO, when I started the Missouri Master Beekeeper Program. All content for the new program remains the same.
