About the Event

An in person interactive workshop on getting started as a natural beekeeper. Join us at the beautiful Elk Run Farm for a weekend of exploration into the ancient art of sacred beekeeping.

In this course we will explore who the honeybees are and our ancient and sacred relationship with them. We will explore the history of beekeeping from ancient ways to the modernization of beekeeping and the current threats our honeybees are facing. From this we will then explore how to tend to and care for honeybees in a way that honors their true nature and seeks to return them to their wildness and their vitality.

This course will take place over the course of two days.

People have the option to take both sessions or just one.

Session 1, May 7th- history of beekeeping, current state of honeybees, why natural beekeeping, getting started as a natural beekeeper, ethically sourcing bees, hive designs, and cultivating a healthy environment for your honeybees.

Session 2, May 8th- seasonally managing your hive, tending to bees in a reverent way, troubleshooting and common things that can go wrong as a beekeeper, holistic management of hive, harvesting and processing the medicines of the hive.

Who is your teacher?

Courtney began her path with the bees in 2011 after experiencing two near death experiences which led her to begin studying with a beekeeper at the age of 18.  She has been on a journey with the bees for the past 10 years and has studied and apprenticed with different beekeepers giving her a wide range of perspectives and approaches. She is deeply passionate about rewilding the bees, creating sacred relationship with them, and sharing their wisdom with others.
