Building a Round Hive

October 13, 2017 @ 2:00 pm – October 14, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Spikenard Farm Honeybee Sanctuary
401 Hideaway Ln SE
Floyd, VA 24091

Since the very beginning, Spikenard has designed and worked with hive types that support the vitality and health of the honeybee by utilizing natural materials with high insulation value and forms that approach roundness.  With our new round hive design, we have paired the emphasis on honeybee health with optimum work-ability, allowing for the most beneficial relationship to develop between bee and beekeeper.

Hands-on hive-building will be accompanied by demonstrations and lectures related to hive scent, warmth, wax, form, and hive-body materials.   Beginning beekeeping topics will not be covered in this workshop!

This workshop is limited to 16 participants.
