The Voelker Orth is home to a thriving bee colony. Now that bee-keeping is legal in NYC, the Museum is offering a foundation course for aspiring and practicing bee-keepers . It covers the basics of  bee care and honey  harvesting. And, it is a great opportunity to meet other  bee-keepers.

The course is taught by master bee-keeper Walter Blohm.  Walter’s knowledge draws on  his 30 years of experience and his work maintaining 25 hives. This is one of the very few places to study bee-keeping in NYC.

The course fee is $90, $75 for Voelker Orth members.
