A Basic Introduction to Beekeeping: Every Garden Needs Pollinators

A Basic Introduction to Beekeeping: 
Every Garden Needs Pollinators

I don't have direct experience with beekeeping but I thought I would use some of the experience of fellow gardener and home farmer, Blake Kirby, to introduce beekeeping basics.

He was able to attend a class that taught him the basics of beekeeping and he brought that to his home farm. He has a series of 6 beekeeping videos that show you how to set up your garden or home farm with a hive. He is building his home farm and is making videos of his experiences.

You can learn about:
  • Placing the Hive Nucleus
  • Setting up the Hive Nucleus
  • Adding Water to the Hive
  • Hive Nucleus Queen
  • The Arrival of Bees

Here are the highlights from his beekeeping class. You can check out his YouTube Channel: Blake Kirby if you want to learn more about beekeeping and home farming.
