Amy's Brooklyn Beekeeping
Still buzzing about beekeeping, but don't know where to start? Lately we've been seeing more and more information for the beginner beekeeper. Classes are popping up around town (for instance, one of our local beekeepers is now offering a Beekeeping 101 weekend workshop), and there are more things on the market to help get you started if you're ready to wrangle with the little pollinators...
Check out this beginner beekeeping kit from Real Goods. At $299, it comes in at the expected price for what a beginner needs to get started, from what we've read about keeping bees.
Find out if there are classes offered in your areas. Of course, the best place to turn is the local honey provider. Spend time at your farmer's market and find the source of all the local gold.
