The Bee Course

"The Bee Course" at Central Library, in the Info Commons. The Bee Course is the most complete education a beekeeper can find outside of a university course. It is also absolutely free. More important, according to instructor James Fischer, it is dogma-free, presenting a pragmatic evidence-based approach unencumbered by mysticism or naivete about bees in a modern urban environment. James Fischer wandered among his beehives in the mountains of Virginia without any formal credentials in entomology at all, but somehow had a very profitable business in pollinating apple trees and selling honey from his 600-hive operation.
