Beekeeping 101: Hive Setup & Installation

  • South Chicago Farm 9000 South Mackinaw Avenue Chicago, IL, 60617 United States (map)

Beekeeping workshops are held at our beautiful South Chicago Farm and Apiary.  The workshop is geared for beginning beekeepers who are interested in purchasing or currently own bee hives.  The first course introduces participants to honey bee biology and behavior, hive parts and tools, record keeping, as well as hive installation and set-up. The instruction for the course includes both a classroom-style presentation as well as hands-on work in the apiary.  Participants should wear light-colored pants and a long-sleeved shirt, socks and closed-toed shoes.  Protective gear will be provided while in the hives.  The workshop will be rescheduled in case of rain.
