FOUNDATIONAL SKILL BUILDING CLASS

BeeKeepers, Many of you have requested a class on making splits. This is a critical and foundational skill. There are a plethora of techniques for splitting a hive. So many in fact, that many bee keepers are confused. This class will demystify the process! We will hone your skills with assessing your hive(s) and review splitting techniques. After this class you will be able to choose the appropriate technique for splitting your hive.

The class will be held Thursday evening, the 10th of April, 7-8:45 PM, at To Bee or Not To Bee in Denver. There is limited seating available, you must RSVP to the following email ToBeeRSVP@gmail.com (Please do NOT respond to my email address unless it is a question) The fee for the class is $20. If you have a financial hardship, email me directly, otherwise come with cash or a check.

I realize this is short notice-but spring is approaching and we all are crazy busy. This is right around dinner time. Feel free to bring food and libations! And, if you get more then one email with this notification-my apology, you are in more then one mail group.

Best Wishes
