Beekeeping in Chicago Workshop

Saturday October 23
10am-1pm
Chicago Center for Green Technology
445 N. Sacramento

Backyard beekeeping is on the rise. From rooftops to backyard gardens, Chicagoans are in love with bees and their delicious byproducts.

Backyard beekeeping supports access to local food, provides ecosystem support and job training; however, small scale beekeeping is a part of a larger effort to protect bees from Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), resulting in large scale bee loss. Bees are responsible for much of our agricultural food production. Backyard beekeeping can help keep bees healthy and protected from CCD and the suspected causes.

Learn from CCGT’s Green Tech University resident apiary expert John William Christman, M.D. with a hands-on demonstration of equipment, techniques and a generous supply of honey to consume! Even better, this workshop is completely free.

Register soon. Space is limited!
To register call (312) 746-9642, or email your desired class and contact information to greentech@cityofchicago.org with “Green Tech U” as the subject line.
