Seattle Free School is offering a class on the basics of beekeeping at the Greenwood Library next month. On Jan. 21 from 5:45-7:45 p.m., anyone can learn the basics of beekeeping in the city, from acquiring bees to extracting honey, to getting the hives ready for winter.
Seattle Free School is exactly that – free. No money involved, just people sharing various skills. Classes range from arts and crafts to learning improv to how to raise chickens in the city, and are held at various locations throughout the city. It’s quite a diverse class list. But, you do need to register in advance to make sure there are enough people to hold a class. And kids are welcome at most any class, except for the ones where safety could be an issue – such as the Auto Repair class.
