One-Day Introduction to Beekeeping Course
(a.k.a. Beekeeping Short Course)
Our one-day beekeeping course is for new beekeepers. It will take you through your first year of beekeeping, from preparing for the arrival of your colonies to preparing them to survive winter. This course is also an excellent refresher for beekeepers to gain more confidence in working with their bees. During the day, you will have the opportunity 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.
Bring the form and payment to the monthly meeting on the second Monday of each month (except December).
