BEEKEEPING CLASS TO BEGIN JANUARY 24th
Have you ever thought about keeping bees, but never knew where to begin? Are you a current beekeeper who wants to build general beekeeping skills? Do you have an interest in learning about this ancient and environmentally beneficial craft? If so, do we have an opportunity for you!
The Person County Beekeepers Association is offering a 10-week beekeeping course. Knowledgeable instructors will cover the history of beekeeping and getting started to seasonal management and the treatment of pests and diseases. At the end of the course, a hands-on beekeeping field day will be held where practices discussed in the classroom will be demonstrated.
Classes will be held every Thursday night for 10 weeks at the Person County Office Building, 304 South Morgan St, Roxboro NC 27573. The first class will be held on January 24th and will begin at 7:00 pm.
The fee for the entire course is $75 for individuals and $125 for couples*. The fee includes course materials, the 1st Lessons in Beekeeping book, a one year PCBA membership and a raffle ticket for a chance to win a complete 10-frame hive.
