Taking Flight – Beginner Beekeeping Classes with Chris Kelly
Dear Lover of Bees!
Welcome to our six-part series of Beekeeping for Beginners with Master Beekeeper Chris Kelly sponsored by Sound Aircraft Services! We finally have put all the pieces into place and are proud to announce our very first educational partnership with Chris Kelly, who has been our beekeeper for our first six hives located at the end of runway 10 at the East Hampton Airport. It has been an amazing year for us of learning all about bees and of course the crowning jewel was our inaugural Honey Harvey Fest (click on this link for footage we received from one of our spectators: https://youtu.be/nh_gcekZ84Y).
The dates are on the following six Thursdays from 7-9pm:
January 6, 2022 7-9pm
January 20, 2022 7-9pm
February 10, 2022 7-9pm
February 24, 2022 7-9pm
March 3, 2022 7-9pm
March 17, 2022 7-9pm
The course will be located at Studio 1 at LTV in Wainscott (just around the corner from the East Hampton Airport). Anyone 12 years and older is encouraged to sign up. Please be aware of LTV’s COVID-19 protocol that anyone entering the building needs to show proof of vaccination.
This will be a fun, educational and interactive course. Anyone who knows Chris can probably confirm this. You will get a chance to learn all about the basics of beekeeping, how to inspect a hive, what equipment you will need, etc. You will get plenty of opportunities to ask questions during the in-person course.
The entire course will be streaming Live through YouTube or Channel20. Information and links will be provided once available. No worries if you can’t make all of the in-person classes, just watch the LTV video at your own pace.

for anyone who is interested in signing up.
We are looking forward to seeing you and join the buzz!
