This is a great opportunity for new beekeepers, prior to their first year of bees, or it can be a great refresher course for beekeepers just now going into their first winter, and even those with a couple of years of experience who want to refresh their skills and knowledge.

The Beginner Bee course consists of 5 sessions and will be taught by two Master Beekeepers. The fee covers the cost of the textbook and the beekeeper’s reference notebook.
