Bee School

2020 Bee School Registration Is Closed
Check Back in December 2020 to Register for 2021

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: Wooden ware purchase and assembly, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques, Bee Products (Honey, Wax, Pollen) and Alternative Bee Keeping Principles to name a few.

In the event of a snowstorm with over 3 inches or more expected to fall, class for that Thursday will be canceled & rescheduled at a later date. To verify cancellation, call recording at (781) 523-1025. Other school questions leave a message.


Join the PCBA Yahoo Group

As a member it is important that you join our Yahoo Group.  The PCBA Yahoo Group is the official club portal for posting important club announcements and club information. By joining the group you will also have access to our extended family of knowledgeable beekeepers and be able to get answers to many of your questions about beekeeping. In December of 2019, Yahoo removed all Yahoo Group services that store data and converted to an email only messaging service. There is therefore no longer any advantage to joining the group as a Yahoo account holder. The easiest way to join is to send an email to from the email address that you used to join PCBA, using “Join Request” in the subject box and stating your name and that you are a PCBA member in the message. If you have a Yahoo account or want to create one you can go the PCBA-LIST Yahoo Group website and hit the “Join Group” button. Note that to use this option you must be logged in to your Yahoo account. You must also indicate in the comments section of the Yahoo Group join request page that you are a PCBA member. Note that this an email messaging only service. There is no online access to messaging history.

Another option is to join the club’s Facebook Group.
