Do It Yourself Workshops
We are excited to announce the addition of “DIY Workshops” to be held in our NEW retail building this winter!
Bee School 2019 at Southridge Farm in Walpole
Much attention has been given the plight of pollinators. Beekeeping is a wonderful hobby that benefits both the beekeeper and the environmental community.
Southridge Farm has partnered with long-time beekeeper Tony Lulek to offer an 8-week beekeeping course that is a combination of hands-on demonstrations and lecture-led discussions that will teach you everything you need to know to get started. Enrollees will benefit from a smaller group where individual needs will be met by ample time for questions each week. Graduates of this course also receive one-on-one mentoring with Tony for the first year.
