Members of the New River Valley Beekeepers’Association will present a Beginning Beekeeper’s Course at 220 Price Hall on the Virginia Tech Campus, Blacksburg, VA. The course covers everything a beginner needs to know to start keeping honey bees, and lasts two Saturdays from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. The first will be 6th February 2016 to enable students to learn how to acquire honey bees and equipment in time to get them for use during spring 2016. The second date is 9th April 2016 and will include how to handle and care for honey bees along with hands-on time in an apiary. Cost is $55 for the first member of a family, $25 for each additional member (with a single set of books/handouts).
