The 2018 Class was a success with 49 graduates now ready to dive into the world of beekeeping. We are looking forward to meeting you at our 2019 class on Januray 26.
Our volunteers make this class a success each year and we are thankful for their continued efforts.
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.
