This class will prepare you for getting your own honeybees this spring with an overview of equipment, honeybee management, and of course honeybees themselves.
Presented by the Southern Tier Beekeepers Association. Bring a drink and snack. Registered participants will receive a CD of the presentations, informative beekeeping documents, and links.
As part of the class there is a "hands-on" session at the STBA club apiary. This session will give everyone a chance to work a beehive and chat with experienced beekeepers. This session is "free" with class registration and is limited to class participants.
