Learn Beekeeping Skills at Our Campus Hives 

Edmonds College Bee Club Logo

Bee Club members have the opportunity to learn hands-on skills in hive management, honey extraction, and sustainable beekeeping at our beehives on the campus farm and during our educational events. We also sell the honey we collect and use the beeswax our bees produce to make candles, lotions, and soaps.
