Learn Beekeeping Basics Learn all the fundamentals of basic, backyard bee keeping from John McDonald, a local experienced beekeeper. Through discussion and hands-on instruction you will learn about the infrastructure of a working hive, production of honey & pollen, and the beloved Queen. Class will begin with a "classroom" lecture where you will learn why bees are so important to our local agriculture as well as how easy it can be to set up and care for your very own hive. The lecture will be followed by stepping outside to explore SF Honey & Pollen Co.'s very own urban apiary. Suit up and look like a real beekeeper! All students are supplied a full bee suit prior to going into the apiary. Learn about the hive. Receive hands-on education of the construction and inner workings of a beehive. Where's the honey? Go into an active hive, to find honey, pollen, and the Queen. Wrap it up! After spending approximately an hour outside, students will go back into the "classroom" and have a chance to continue the buzz... ...The buzz continues with an open Q&A session. Allowing students to reflect on the day's activities, you are given the chance to ask any questions you may have about bees, hives, honey, pollen, & backyard beekeeping. The sweetest part of the class has yet to come. The Q&A session will be followed by a class tasting of SF Honey & Pollen Co.'s artesian, microclimate honeys & pollen, all locally harvested from the Bay Area.

ABOUT JOHN
CONTACT

John McDonald founded SF Honey & Pollen Co. in 2006. His love for nature and the outdoors as well as his unforgiving curiosity, led him to the discovery of bees and honey. It began as a hobby and quickly evolved into something more. As he learned of the declining bee population and their important role in our everyday lives he made it his mission to become part of the urban beekeeping movement. He began his journey through a friend and fellow beekeeper, learning the ins-and-outs of beekeeping and everything he needed to get started. Soon, John built his own hive boxes and put three of them in the yard at his shop. Before he knew it, he was putting hives in the backyards of family, friends, and neighbors. This of course, left him with more honey than he knew what to do with. A business was born. He began bottling and selling his honey and teaching classes on beekeeping. He currently runs 50+ hives in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area, helping to keep local organic farms alive through pollination!
