Thank you for an enjoyable and insightful class. As experienced beekeepers, my wife and I have had the opportunity to attend and to present several introduction to beekeeping classes. Your class is different.
You cover the basics, but you look beyond the first few months and talk about how a beekeeper can survive the natural colony loss that occurs in today’s environment. You teach a system that not only replaces natural losses, but also allows a beekeeper to increase their colonies and make beekeeping profitable or at the very least a breakeven proposition. The value of what you are doing is to keep new beekeepers from burning out from frustration.
Even though we are in our seventh year as beekeepers and have attended many state and even nation conferences, we came home from your class with renewed enthusiasm and fresh ideas that we can use this year.
You gave us some valuable pearls of wisdom.
