Medina County Beekeepers Beginner Classes (Saturday) 2018

February 10 @ 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Medina County Beekeepers holds an annual Beekeeping For Beginners Class in Feb & Mar each year. The class covers what to do before you get your bees, how much will it cost, what equipment is needed to keep bees, how to get started, basic care and feeding of honey bees, honey bee colony growth and development, management skills for summer, fall, winter and next spring, trouble shooting when something isn’t right, good neighbor tactics, and harvesting your crop.

We have two sessions in 2018. Classes will be Feb 10 and Feb 17 from 9 am to 5 pm. Please bring a lunch.

Cost for the class is $85 for an individual or $100 for a family. In addition to the class tuition, students receive a textbook, 1 year membership in the Medina County Beekeepers Association and a variety of magazines and catalogs from the beekeeping industry. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged so we know how to prepare, but fees can be paid at the first class. (Current MCBA members who have paid for and taken the class before may retake the class for free.)
