This beginner bee-keeping course will educate those interested in getting involved with BEES.

Other topics will be how and when to harvest HONEY, split hives, and winterize the bees. A $50 material fee is payable to the instructor at the start of class. The fee will cover the cost of book and free membership for one year to the Kennebec or Somerset Bee Keepers Clubs. Limit 25 students.
