Wilson County Beekeepers Association will offer a free three-night course in beginning beekeeping.
This class will take place Tuesday, Jan. 20 through Thursday, Jan. 22, at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center (fairgrounds) in the Veteran’s Building across from the General Store in Fiddler’s Grove toward the back of the fair grounds, starting promptly at 7 nightly and concluding around 9.
Tuesday and Wednesday night will be a classroom setting with valuable information and Thursday will be a hands-on program in building a complete beehive ready to use.
The class will touch on all aspects of beekeeping, from installing a package of bees to extracting the honey. After the completion of the class, each beginning beekeeper who has attended all three evenings will be eligible to win a number of door prizes including a beginner’s kit, which will get you started in beekeeping.
Class size is limited, so please be sure to contact Petra Mitchell at 286-2529 or email@example.com by Jan. 17 to reserve your seat for this program, or if you have any questions.
