January Intro to Beekeeping Class 

(a.k.a. Beekeeping Short Course)

Our beekeeping short course is designed for new beekeepers and will take you through your first year of beekeeping, from the first day your bees arrive through surviving winter.  This course is also a great refresher for the beekeeper who feels they might benefit from a little more confidence in working with their bees.  During the day, you will have the oppurtunity to meet members of the Coweta Beekeeper Association and there will be plenty of time for questions. 

 

Breakfast, snacks, and lunch are included for the day.
