What's included

  • The class is taught by Konrad Bouffard, hailed as "beekeeper extraordinaire" by the Austin Chronicle, and his team of master beekeepers. It begins with an hourlong classroom course on bee biology and beehive management. Afterward, students suit up in full bee suits and head over to the on-site apiary, or "bee yard." Students learn how to circle beehives, light a smoker to calm the bees, and honeycomb and lay honey top to bottom in the hives.
