2018 Bee School Registration is CLOSED.
Please check back in December for 2019 Bee School.
The Plymouth County Beekeepers Association holds bee school annually. The enrollment fee includes one text book, course materials, and a year’s membership with the club. Your tuition allows all family members in the same household to attend Bee School, and become active members of the Club.
The PCBA’s annual bee school is the club’s signature outreach and membership program. Hosted and instructed by PCBA members and guest speakers, this 8 session course meets every other Thursday, 7-9 PM, beginning in January and ending in April. Join us before class for an “Ask the Beekeeper” section to get assistance with your specific questions.
Topics in modern beekeeping techniques are discussed and several demonstrations are provided to class members. Topics include: Woodenware purchase and assembly, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques, Bee Products (Honey, Wax, Pollen) and Alternative Bee Keeping Principles to name a few.
Courses are designed to accommodate all who sign up, however there are limits so be sure to sign up as soon as possible. If enrollment exceeds 60 persons, additional sessions may be offered to ensure students are receiving the highest quality education the PCBA can provide.
In the event of a snowstorm with over 3 inches on the roads, and more expected to fall, class for that Thursday will be cancelled & rescheduled at a later date. To verify cancellation, call recording at (339) 933-8751. Other school questions leave a message.
