Local beekeeper Sean Sanker, who keeps hives at Newton Community Farm, will lead this class in a discussion of beekeeping basics. He will explain the general process of keeping bees and the equipment needed as well as interesting bee facts.
Sean has been keeping bees as a hobby since 2013. He is a Newton resident and the founder of Bay State IT, an information technology company that services the biotech industry.
Newton Community Farm follows MA and City of Newton protocols to keep our staff, students, volunteers, and the communtity as safe as possible.
