When we have other classes coming up, their info will appear here, too, so stay tuned!
After losing both of my hives in November 2019 during my first year of beekeeping, I went looking for answers. The answers came in the form of the excellent A2B2 Bee School! I was impressed by the time, care and patience David Pearce takes with each student beekeeper. He not only answers all the questions students ask, but goes the extra mile to follow-up with interesting bits of information that round out our beekeeping toolkits of knowledge. In my first year with A2B2 beekeeping, I've successfully dealt with a hive with a laying worker, re-queened that hive, managed mite issues, and learned how make sure my beehives remain healthy and protected from the harsh Michigan winters, all with David's outstanding mentorship. So far, as of January 2021, my hives are alive and well. Thank you A2B2 Beekeeping school for a great year of learning. I can't wait for Intermediate Beekeeping!
I was a student in Beginning Beekeeping in 2020. As I have communicated to (instructor) Dave Pearce and sidekick Andrea, I was very fortunate to have them as instructors for this very knowledge rich curriculum. The magnitude of the hands-on and science-based experience has helped me immeasurably in my first year of beekeeping. The presentation material was great, laced with appropriate humor, and the facilitation of open discussions was valuable. Dave and Andrea were always available (e-mail, text, cell, etc.) for, and responded to, questions. Additionally, I want to note their perseverance in that all training was completed despite the covid19 virus countermeasures. I highly recommend The Beginning Beekeeping class.
