Our Educators are currently working closely with this year’s class of new beekeeping apprentices. Check back soon for new classes for the public, or stay up-to-date by following us on Facebook.
Here are some examples of classes we expect to offer this fall and winter for new or interested beekeepers.
Is Beekeeping Right for Me?
This is a free one-hour class giving an overview of beekeeping. Learn about the goals of the Appalachian Bee Collective and how you can be involved! We will offer this class in several counties throughout our region starting in late October.
This is a five-week class offered to train new beekeepers in the art and science of beekeeping. This class will cover the basics of getting started with beekeeping, keeping your bees healthy throughout the year, and identifying common problems in a hive and finding solutions for them. An introduction to honey bee biology will also be given. Attendance at this class is mandatory for those interested in becoming partners in the Appalachian Beekeeping Collective. We will offer this class in several counties throughout our region starting in January.
