Sign Up for Beginning Beekeeper Classes

Sign Up now available for Beekeeper classes

A set of four beginning beekeeper classes will be offered at the Dordt University Agriculture Stewardship Center on Tuesday evenings starting on January 4, 2022 at 6:30 p.m.

The first class is informational and is free of charge. It is titled, “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Beekeeping,” and will provide an overview of what needs to be considered if one wants to begin beekeeping. Costs of beekeeping, hive locations, bee acquisition, and much more will be presented during the first class, with sufficient time allocated for answering participant questions.

There will be a fee for the additional classes on January 11, 18, and either February 8 or 15 for the participants who, after learning about what beekeeping entails, want to continue the course.

Those interested in coming to the first informational class can pre-register by emailing Dr. Duane Bajema at or
