This complete series of classes will help guide you through the steps necessary to begin, keep and maintain healthy bees. Everyone participating in the course will receive introductory instruction and recommendations for starting your own apiary, and most importantly, hands-on experience.

Even if you only take a class here and there you'll still be ahead of the game. However, each of the classes is​ important as they will help you anticipate what's to come and  help build confidence to make decisions as you begin this new hobby.

ITH Class Information

Imagine That Honey (ITH) – Class Locations

We offer classes and workshops throughout the summer for novice and more advanced beekeepers. This year the Beginner Beekeeping, and Advanced Classes will be offered in Swanzey, NH with special workshops, or weekend tutorials offered throughout the Monadnock Region and upon request.  We try to keep our group classes small with between 10-15 students, and always encourage the beginner students to bring a friend, or "bee buddy" along.

Beekeeping Classes - Hands-on experience can really make a difference!

Learn from experienced beekeepers who value your interest in learning how to safely and responsibly provide a healthy environment for your bees to prosper. Classes are offered once a month from March – September (No classes in August). These classes offer you recommendations regarding equipment, bees, and information necessary to build and maintain healthy hives. As the season progresses you will become more comfortable in the hives and visit several apiaries and different ways to keep bees.  Cost: $40/ class. We encourage you to bring a "bee buddy" at no additional cost.

We have a special place in our hearts for honey bees as well as lots of other important pollinators. Workshops will be offered to highlight how we can make a difference by offering habitat that encourage these vital creatures into our yards. Just think about what you ate today. Did it require  pollinator to flower, and bring you that piece of fruit, or perhaps that local vegetable? You can start your own garden. Let's learn how easy it can be to grow some of your own food!
