As you may or may not know, I am in the process of setting up a teaching apiary at Scatter Joy Acres in the Florence area of Omaha.
Along with my Bee Smart Crew, we will be doing the work of setting up and operating a productive honey and beeswax producing apiary. This allows includes opportunities for area beekeepers and beekeepers-to-be to have a place to get actual “hands-on” training and experience doing beekeeping things with guidance and supervision of experienced apiarists.
You can come down to Scatter Joy Acres this Saturday February 17th starting at 1pm to be an Intern or Apprentice and get some quality training and practice in.
You decide if you will mostly just watch and learn (an Intern) or if you will get hands-on (an Apprentice). To participate as an Intern for one session is only $7.50 per intern. To participate as an Apprentice for one session is only $15.00 per apprentice.
Everyone wins here. You get valuable experience and instruction for a very reasonable price while Scatter Joy Acres gets an apiary on site to provide educational experiences and raise money.
This month we are building and repairing bee hives.
Afterwards, you can take advantage if already being there and support Scatter Joy Acres by taking a tour of the farm and visiting the animals that have been rescued. (Only $5.00 which helps them keep things going).
