Learn Bee Keeping from the Best



Beekeeping can seem a little daunting at first and the initial investment in the knowledge, equipment and bees is substantial. Our goal is to simplify the process and lift the veil of mystery surrounding the amazing Apis Mellifera.

Group Lessons

In Dripping Springs or Navasota Texas


BeeWeaver's beekeeping classes are taught by Danny Weaver. Danny is a fourth generation beekeeper with over 4 decades of experience working bees. Beekeeping classes are tailored to the student's needs and will be hands on learning with over an hour in hives and ample time given to questions/answers.

Minimum of 1 hour instruction in our hives, with additional time for questions/answers. With a small group, every student is given a chance to participate, inspect frames of bees, and we personalize each lesson to the group's needs.

  • Minimum of 5 people must register for a lesson to take place, and a maximum of 10 people may participate in a group lesson.
  • BeeWeaver will provide protective gear if you do not have your own. Please do not bring hive tools, gloves, or smokers to reduce the risk of transferring bee diseases.
  • Minimum age is 6, and children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult
