Spikenard Biodynamic Beekeeping Training (Spring Module)

May 9 @ 9:00 am May 11 @ 5:00 pm

Spikenard Biodynamic Beekeeping Training

In-Depth Training

This is the most in-depth training that Spikenard Farm offers. The objective of this course is for participants to come away with an understanding of both the spiritual and physical conditions that the bees need for their health and vitality, and to learn the beekeeping and land care methods that can serve these conditions. Personal relationship with the bees will be developed through lectures, meditative exercise, artistic work, group discussion, and Goethean studies, and participants will be supported in developing sanctuary in their own communities.

Four Modules

This course is taught in four stand-alone in-person learning modules, which do not have to be attended in order. Participants can choose the dates that work best for their life and schedule when registering. All in-person modules are held on the grounds of Spikenard Sanctuary from 9AM – 5PM each day.
