Learn Beekeeping in Time for Spring 2022

With the PerfectBee Through-the-Winter Event

Nov 1st 2021 - Jan 31st 2022

Includes all Colony Membership Benefits and Additional Winter Events

What Is This Event?

PerfectBee has introduced thousands of folks to beekeeping since 2015. Our Colony Membership for Hobbyist Beekeepers, is a wonderfully friendly and supportive community, helping beekeepers learn and enjoy beekeeping, no matter their level of experience (including those who have not yet installed their first beehive).

Building on top of Colony, each year we run our highly-popular PerfectBee Through The Winter Course. This fun and informative event runs from Nov 1st to Jan 31st and prepares new beekeepers to confidently start beekeeping in the spring.

The Winter event adds a number of scheduled Q&A webinars, one for each of the three Academy courses. We also deliver an email series designed to keep you on track, as you your progress through Academy.

If you are looking to start beekeeping next spring - or hoping to build your beekeeping knowledge - you've come to the right place!

And check out our early bird special!
