The Complete Course Materials - Bee-Centered Beekeeping Immersion Class
This is a digital download of the complete course materials covering the ethos, tenets, and practices of bee-centered beekeeping. The materials are written to read more like a story than a textbook, and are complete with high-quality photos throughout. The materials explore the areas of habitat, regional adaptation, practices, the hive cavity, the wonders of natural comb, practical examples of the differences between conventional and bee-centered beekeeping, and much more.
Here are a couple of reviews from people who attended the class:
"My experience at Scott's workshop was truly enlightening. Scott's bee-centered focus on 'beekeeping' is attractive, and his energy and love for bees is contagious. The bee-centered focus on 'beekeeping' in this workshop present truths from first-hand experience. These pieces of experience and wisdom from researchers, beekeepers, and bee-lovers provide healthy, happy, and holistic solutions to the unwholesome conventional practices of beekeeping. I would recommend this class to folks just getting into beekeeping, anybody looking to gain and swap knowledge, and those looking for alternative hives as Scott's Bee Tree Hives are phenomenal. This class is well worth the time and cost. Scott is a welcoming, gracious, and knowledgable host, and he provides an excellent setting in his own backyard to learn."
"I took Scott Sailors' Bee-Centered Beekeeping class this weekend. It was fun, informative, and filling (he and his wife served a great lunch as well). I like Scott's philosophy of 'the bees know best what's best for the bees.' His philosophy seems to be pretty much a hands-off kind of approach, bothering the bees as little as possible. He is a wealth of knowledge and very willing to share what he knows. I would highly recommend his class if you're interested in learning about beekeeping." Jerry S., Colorado
