Every thought about keeping bees in your own city? You can!

Ever thought of keeping a colony of honey bees in your own backyard? Or what it takes to get started in beekeeping? Maybe you just are curious about these docile, hard-working insects that enhance our lives in so many ways.

This is your chance to find out what it’s like to experience honey bees up close--yes, that close! You'll don the gear and explore hives with 35,000 bees right alongside long-time Northeast Portland beekeeper Glen Andresen. You’ll hear the buzz, smell the young brood, and feel the wax and propolis.

One part of beekeeping you are very unlikely to experience is getting stung. It’s been said that honey bees are the golden retrievers of the stinging insects. And it’s true, as honey bees could usually not care less about you.

You'll get an idea of how to get started, where to get bees, what tools and protective clothing are needed, and what types of bee boxes are available and recommended.

Finally, you’ll get to taste raw honey from the hive, and watch it get removed from the comb in a big honey extractor.

Glen Andresen’s life changed in unimagined ways when an old-time beekeeper introduced him to the art, craft and science of keeping bees…and so began a lifetime fascination with the wonder and magic of honey bees. Glen has been keeping bees in his own backyard in northeast Portland since 1992 and in other people’s backyards since 2002. Last year, his city bees produced more than 3,600 pounds of honey.

He teaches backyard organic beekeeping classes through Portland Community College.

In 2013, Glen co-founded Bridgetown Bees, a project to raise locally adapted honey bee queens in Portland.

Donde estarás

We'll be meeting at Glen's home apiary in Northeast Portland, which usually has up to a couple of dozen hives of honey bees. Glen also has an extensive (and intensive!) home garden with some 40 fruit trees (many espaliered in the Belgian fence style), ten raised vegetable beds, raspberries, Marionberries, strawberries, and blueberries--all on a city lot that measures 60 by 100 feet.

Glen was a wonderful host. He loves his beehives and beekeeping. He is a true expert! We learnt a ton about bees. It was great to be out of our comfort zone surrounded by bees. We absolutely loved it!

This was such an immersive experience. My friend and I are so pumped up and excited after learning so much about honeybees from Glen. He’s extremely patient, knowledgeable, and we consider him a master beekeeper! 🐝 The whole experience was one of a kind and personable, and after tasting freshly harvested honey, there’s no way we can go back to basic store bought honey. We weren’t even phased by the bees whizzing past us after the experience. Thanks Glen!

Really enjoyed learning about beekeeping from Glen as he was a very knowledgeable and a kind and welcoming host who loves what he does. I really liked how low key it was–very classic Portland in NE. And we got to taste some of the honey–possibly some of the best honey I've ever tried!

Glen is an absolute wonder to watch and learn from. His commitment to providing the best ecosystem for his bees and the best quality bee products is unparalleled. I would love to come back and take another advanced workshop so that I can possibly keep a few hives in my own home one day. Thank you Glen for the inspiration!

This is an awesome experience! Glen has been beekeeping for ~30 years now and he has a great knowledge of his craft. He answered all of our group's in-depth questions as he showed us the ins and outs of beekeeping. For a two-hour (plus!) experience, you get awesome value for cost. His honey is delicious!

We throughly enjoyed this experience with Glen! He took us throughout his yard and thought us everything you would want to know about beekeeping and harvesting honey. The real treat was when we got to taste the honey fresh from the comb. It was so delicious we had to buy some to take home!
