Bee School

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

*** Due the COVID-19 situation we are in the process of evaluating whether or not it makes sense to offer Bee School in 2021. The decision will be largely dependent on what the situation with COVID-19 is as we approach December and whether we are able to offer in-person classes. When the decision is finalized, probably early in December, it will be posted here. ***

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.
