In a beginner class you will get several hours of “classroom” instruction, a book for new beekeepers called Starting Right With Bees, a spring visit to my hives to watch me work my bees where I show you much of what you have learned, and more. You also have the option of a reassuring visit from me to your hives for the additional fee of $0.50 per mile. Mileage rates are from my home (near the Ford International Airport) to your hives and back (maximum 100 mile round trip). Future visits would include our fee plus mileage. While I cannot be a personal mentor to all my class members, I do welcome questions throughout the season via e-mail.
