Join Rick Harty, NCSBA Master Beekeeper, as he teaches students the history and biology of the honeybee, how to start a hive using a variety of equipment, the relationship between the honeybee and agriculture, and how to use and sell products for the hive. Students will also learn about the threats to a honeybee colony, such as parasites, disease, and Colony Collapse Disorder. Students will be given information regarding the NC Beehive Grants. The course will conclude with a visit to the Harty Farm bee yard for a hands-on hive experience.
