Time: Classes held at 9am-noon.
Registration: You do not need to call, email, facebook or contact us in advance to register for class. Just show up. It is not required that you attend all the classes but it is suggested you do in order to get the most benefit out of learning to work with bees.
What You'll Need: Bee suits not required for the first class, which is the class in February. We suggest you wait until after the first beekeeping class (the February class) before you purchase bee suits and equipment. That way you won't purchase what you don't need. You may also want to bring materials for taking notes. The first class (February 15) and the second class (March 15) you will not need a bee suit. (ALL THE REST OF THE CLASSES REQUIRE BEE SUITS, GLOVES, HATS, VEIL, STURDY SHOES.)
