mf.pngChicago Honey Coop wants to help you become the beekeeper you always wanted to be. On a dreary day like today, why not start planning for all the awesome gifts of homemade honey you can give to others? Or to yourself? Haul out your Ren Faire garb and get your meade cup cleaned and at the ready; CHC's Beginning Beekeeping Class is Saturday, May 14 (10am-3pm) at Hull House; for $65, you'll learn the ins and outs--hive management and maintenance, and how to keep healthy bees. The second stage of the class ($78) is May 21 at CHC's apiary; you'll get hands-on time with the equipment. Both events culminate with a pot luck lunch. Register soon--before you have to transfer to Grover Cleveland.
