    Class will begin at 9:30 am and we will finish about 4:30.  Please bring a lunch, coffee and snacks will be provided and also a smoker, hive tool and some smoker fuel to get your smoker lit - a requirement for the day.  We will be working bees during the middle of the day, so you will need bee gear, gloves, etc.  If you do not have protective gear, please email me and I will try to have gear available for you. Read chapters 1 - 4 in our text and write a one page report on how they over wintered, even if it was unsuccessful and if you do not have bees currently, I would like you to do some research on swarming to share with the class.

Classes open to registered Apprentices only. Please contact Carolyn Breece for more information.
