There has been much interest in honeybees and beekeeping in recent years due to a rapid decline in honeybee populations. Backyard beekeeping is just one of many ways to support and get to know honeybees. This workshop will be a primer into the world of bees and will cover the history of beekeeping, colony collapse and disorder, ways we can help honeybees, the basics of starting a hive and how to seasonally manage a hive. Courtney Cosgriff a local beekeeper, clinical herbalist, and certified nutritionist from Morrison, CO will be leading the workshop.
Courtney is the owner of Honeybee Herbals a small business dedicated to provide Earth-centered healing and education in the hopes of restoring our connection to the natural world. Courtney has been keeping bees for over 5 years along the front range and has been actively teaching communities about them since then. She feels called to be a strong voice for the honeybees in trying times.
