4/17 Beekeeping Class Series & Apiary Tour - Online Only
CLASS SERIES WITH APIARY TOUR - ONLINE ONLY
Introducing our online live class series with an apiary tour. We have been building a pollinator sanctuary and educational site in Rancho Cucamonga at The Root 66 Garden for years. However, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed our opening by a year. Prior to this we had been teaching and giving classes around the Inland Empire and across the United States. We are thrilled to finally open the sanctuary for public tours!
This series will involve 5 hours of instruction at the outdoor site, but this is the online Zoom version. For every online student, $10 will be donated to the community garden. If you would like the in-person class, please see our other listings on our site.
