Over the years, we have volunteered teaching or supporting classes in all local beekeeping associations. After receiving many requests from people that would like to get started in beekeeping but their schedules cannot fit any available classes or there's just not a class in their area, we decided to develop an online education system for beekeepers.
We decided to release this online education system working in collaboration with the Backyard Beekeepers Association (501c3 non-profit). They will be hosting regular classes in Deer Park, WA, but also released online classes for beekeeping enthusiasts that are not in driving distance or cannot match the class schedule.
The online system courses will cover the theory. For hands-on experience, we will open our bee yard or we will recommend teaming up with a local mentor.
If you are in driving distance from our educational bee yard, we will have hands-on mentoring available (free for students of the online class, with the scheduled defined by the beekeeping association volunteers).
BeeManiacs Educational yard location:
7619 W Woolard Rd,
Deer Park, WA 99006
You can enroll now in the online class following this link: http://www.backyard-beekeepers.org/classes/
The Backyard Beekeepers Association (BBA) will charge a fee for joining their educational program. This includes an optional BBA beekeeping certification, access to the online system and support through a private forum. All the funds paid for the class go to the BBA. BeeManiacs makes the system available to the BBA for free and we will not receive any payment for the use of this system. All funds collected by the BBA are used for covering costs of other educational programs and supporting the non-profit.
