Here's what some folks have said about our classes:
I have been thinking about what it is that makes Christy's class
different than other teachings that are available to beekeepers and top
bar hive beekeepers:
The class is not only about keeping bees
in top bar hives, it is also about bees. What I mean is that it is
completely comprehensive. Anyone can Google around for months on end and
never find all the information that is included in the class. It is
soup to nuts on keeping bees and keeping them in top bar hives. She is
an engaging and entertaining teacher building a community of like minded
beekeepers who can grow together in experience and in support of one
-- Suzanne Brewer
I just attended Christy’s Weekend Intensive bee class and found it to be a perfect
introduction to the fine art of bee keeping. Christy’s style lends
itself to a class full of exploration into the fascinating life of the
honey bee. I learned how important this insect is to sustaining our
agricultural and natural systems and how imperiled they are by the same
practices that have brought industrial agriculture to the unsustainable
place it now occupies.
I cannot recommend strongly enough the importance and outright fun that
this class can deliver. I have signed up for a top bar hive as a result
and can hardly wait to roll down my sleeves and become a member of the
bee keeping world. If you have ever thought that you might want to know
more about tending wild bees and are looking for a perspective that
draws the best from age-old practices and explores the newest
methodologies of organic bee keeping, this is the class for you. Enjoy!
