Beehive Protection 101
March 13, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
Any experienced beekeeper will tell you that if you don’t have a fence to protect your hives, it’s just a matter of time until you’ll suffer a bear attack. In this class, participants will learn about the most common fence systems for protecting beehives from bears, skunks, and other hungry critters. This 3-hour session will familiarize you with electric fencing, its initial setup and maintenance, and the recommended training of predators specific for beehive protection.

Installing & Maintaining 2D/3D Electric Fences for Deer and Wildlife Exclusion
April 17, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
Multiple strand electric fences are both effective and economical for deer and critter control. A three tape, 2D system provides excellent all-around, seasonal protection against invasion, although gardens in areas with high deer pressure may require a 3D fence for greater depth and effectiveness. Participants will learn about selecting conductor types, installation, fence maintenance, and trouble-shooting.

Residential Gardening - Keep Critters Out!
April 24, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
Nothing is more infuriating than waking up one morning to find that those little seedlings you have painstakingly nurtured, anticipating a healthy, homegrown meal for your family, have been nibbled to the ground overnight by foes of the forest! In this workshop, we’ll cover everything you need to know to select, install, and maintain an effective electric garden fence. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have the knowledge and confidence to thwart wildlife and send them running back to the woods.

Extended Grazing for Sheep & Goats
October 9, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
More and more farmers are realizing the benefits of grazing their livestock well beyond the traditional timeline by using portable electric netting. This workshop will teach the basics of electric fence and how you can use it to save on feed costs by extending the grazing season until snow falls. Participants will get hands-on experience by moving one of Wellscroft’s flocks – there’s no better way to learn than getting your boots dirty! Don’t worry - our border collies will be standing by in case things go south.

Winterizing Your Fence & Energizer
November 13, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
When the days begin to get shorter and colder, out comes that “winter checklist.” Readying your fence for winter is as important as monitoring it during the summer. We’ll teach participants how to properly store their electric netting and energizer, and tips for winterizing permanent fencing including switching to a pos/neg system. We’ll also cover end-of-season techniques and preparation required to dust off, prepare, and re-energize your equipment for springtime use.
