Location: South Chicago Farm, 9000 S Mackinaw Ave, Chicago IL 60617.

Participants will inspect the hives for diseases, pests and honey flow. After inspection and clean-up, we will prepare the hives for winter. Learn the ins and outs of taking care of your bees over the winter months to help maintain a healthy hive all year-long. After the hives are prepared, participants will learn how to extract and process honey. Participants should wear light-colored pants and a long-sleeved shirt, socks and closed-toed shoes. Protective gear will be provided while in the hives. The workshop will be rescheduled in case of rain.
