Bee School

2023 Bee School  Registration Is Closed

Please Check Back in December to Register for 2024 Bee School

(Note that a limited number of “walk-ins” are accommodated on the first night but only payment by check or cash are accepted.)

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 (508) 816-9364. Other school questions leave a message.
