Hey Yall!

I just wanted to let everyone know about my beekeeping classes that I am offering this year. The first round is this coming weekend the 26th and 27th of April. I will hold the class at Wildwood Brewery in Stevensville, MT from 4-8 pm on Saturday the 26th, and the 27th it will be held at my place from noon until 4 pm. The cost is $20/person and I will have classes the last Sat/Sun of each month until September. Each class will focus on specific topics related to the season as well as basic honeybee care. Please visit my facebook page, Sapphire Permaculture Apiary for more details.

Sincerely,

Jacob Wustner

Hi there,
Are you going to have the same kind of class next year, or begin it again sometime?

Thanks

Al Aric, Yes I will be doing classes again next year. I may change the format a little bit, and I am open to suggestions as how to structure the classes. I still have 3 classes left this season. And I recently found a location to do classes in Missoula! They will be held at the Moon-Randolf homestead in Missoula on the same saturdays that I teach a class in Stevensville at Wildwood Brewery. The classes at the homestead will run from 11 am until 3 pm. Please call or email me to let me know you are coming! Check out my facebook page, Sapphire Permaculture Apiary for more info or to find out how to contact me. Also I plan to do some workshops this fall/winter. The first one will be building different styles of hives, including warre, langstroth, top bar hives and traditional log hives. Please post here if you have anymore questions or suggestions. Thanks!

Hey Y'all Missoulians! I am hosting a workshop at the Moon-Randolf homestead on Saturday, and we will bee building my first bee hut! All that attend get a free glass of mead (if you are of age), and will be able to burn their name into the bee hut. Also we will be sculpting a log hive with a chainsaw. If you say that Paul Wheaton sent you, then you get a 50% off coupon for a future class or workshop! Please call or email me if you plan on attending so I can bring enough mead!
