A beehive or two in the backyard has become a common sight in recent years for several reasons, including food production and providing support for our favorite pollinators. In an effort to get even more folks involved, the Rodale Institute is offering a two-day class, on April 18 and 19, called “Backyard Hobby Beekeeping: Healthy bees mean healthy honey,” with Assistant Professor Dr. Robyn Underwood in which participants will receive in-depth training in beekeeping to help them better understand the life of bees and to be successful at maintaining healthy hives.
