Do you want to learn to keep bees or just learn something about bees? A Beekeeping for Beginners’ class will be held on April 2, 9, and 16 from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM at the Virginia Tech Experiment Station in Painter, Virginia.
Sponsored by the Beekeepers Guild of the Eastern Shore, the three day course will provide information on starting a beehive, getting new bees, choosing equipment and extracting honey. Visits to near-by bee hives will be made on days that weather permits to give participants a close up view of beekeeping.
The course fee of $20 includes a basic beekeeping book, information on the biology of bees, equipment displays, hands-on demonstrations, a bee suppliers catalog, and much more.
Please go to the Beekeepers Guild of the Eastern Shore web site at www.bgesva.org to register, or call Linda Goldstine at 442.7767 for registration information.
