In Bee Mindful's Natural Beekeeping Classes, Natural Beekeeping Experts Les Crowder and Nathalie Biggie will teach you the basics of beekeeping, as well as cultural and mechanical ways to troubleshoot colony problems and keep your bees stress-free and healthy, the natural way. You will learn common sense beekeeping tricks that are often free and can help you keep bees without spending money on expensive and confusing treatments that can contaminate your honey and negatively impact your queen and your colony.
With Bee Mindful, you will learn how to control mites, disease, wax moths and beetles naturally, so you can keep pesticides out of your hives (including those so-called "organic" treatments, because let's face it, they are after all insecticides, whose role is to be toxic to insects, and bees are .... insects!). We will show you how to grow strong, resilient colonies of happy bees, naturally: register for one of our BNB Series Classes (3-part Becoming a Natural Beekeeper Series) or do all three of them to get your Natural Beekeeper certificate. Other classes and workshops are also available below, including our popular Top-Bar Hive Making Class with Les Crowder!
