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.
