NRV group to offer two-day Beginning Beekeeper’s Course in February/April
Members of the New River Valley Beekeepers’ Association will present a two-day Beginning Beekeeper’s Course at 220 Price Hall on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg in 2013.
The course covers everything a beginner needs to know to start keeping honey bees, and will be held 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 2, 2013 and April 6, 2013. The first day will enable students to learn how to acquire honey bees and equipment in time to get them for use this spring. The second date will cover how to handle and care for honey bees along with hands-on time in an apiary.
The cost is $55 for the first member of a family and $25 for each additional member (with a single set of books/handouts).
