Learn basic skills for backyard beekeeping and the importance bees have on the environment
Honey bees are vital to our supply of healthy foods. Honey bees are pollinators, which means they travel from plant to plant to collect and deposit pollen – which makes it possible for many flowers, fruits and vegetables to reproduce. Bees also pollinate the clover and alfalfa that cows eat.
This Backyard Beekeeping Skill Set provides learners with skills and knowledge for hobbyist beekeepers. Learn how to assemble a hive, operate a bee smoker and carry out bee husbandry tasks.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive a Certificate of Attainment.
