Get your daily dose of bees!

North West Beekeeping is committed to serving the community of beekeepers by providing the most current and applicable beekeeping training for the Great North West. Our goal is to teach you about the bees so that you will know how to keep them. While beekeeping is a worthwhile endeavor it does requires  somewhat of a commitment.  Therefore, we have the resources to teach everyone from the the hobbyist to the commercial beekeeper. Below are a list of training opportunities that may fit your needs.

   Everyday 22 veterans take their own lives leaving love ones behind wondering what could they have done. We that know while the PSTD and other mental disorders are the cause of these tragic events we had decided to do something about it.  Partnering with GRUB, VETC, WDVA, WASBA and a host of other partners we have started Healing through Hives (HTH) to serve the most at rest veterans in our community. HTH is a program teaching veterans all levels of beekeeping to include commercial beekeeping. At this time we currently have two active sites and are working on two more.
