Steve Repasky has taught me a lot about caring for honey bees over the last three seasons. I'm lucky to have such a great mentor. It takes time to learn bee biology, having a Burgh Bees mentor saved my hive many times.

He's teaching the same class I took a couple years ago. Burgh Bees is an organization trying to help honey bees thrive in Pittsburgh and beyond.

The two day class will teach you everything you need to know to begin caring for bees. I love my bees. They pollinated my vegetables and flowers. They also make the most amazing honey, lots of honey!

The classes are held at the Penn State Extension of Allegheny County, 400 N Lexington St, 3rd Floor, Pittsburgh on Saturday, October 26 and Saturday, Nov 2, 2013 from 8:30am until 1:00pm.
Registration is required, here are all the details.
