Classroom and hands-on learning offer practical skills for at-home beekeeping and honey extractions, as well as an in-depth look at the biology and history of beekeeping. You’ll work with live bees from United’s own bee operation, giving you the confidence to start a successful beehive in your backyard.
Saturday, August 9
9:00 AM–4:00 PM
|Brandon Krosch, United’s physical plant director, is a third-generation beekeeper and director of the Minnesota Hobby Beekeepers Association. In addition to his home-based beekeeping enterprise, he tends several hives at United, from which he extracts the seminary’s supply of Holy Honey each fall.
NOTE FROM THE INSTRUCTOR: Due to a high level of activity from the hive this year, our honey flow has come much earlier than expected. Because of this, we will be spinning honey (which was planned for the second class session) during the FIRST CLASS SESSION. THE SECOND CLASS SESSION HAS BEEN CANCELLED. This now one-session class will be held on Saturday, August 9.
