All classes are Tuesdays evenings from 7:00p.m. – 9:00p.m. There are eight class sessions in each course.

Most participants come to the Beekeeping Class with an interest bees, their place in our world, and to learn just what is involved in beekeeping. Some are completely new to the hobby while others have been or are current beekeepers wishing to refine and update their knowledge.
