Advanced Beekeeping 102

March 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

This workshop is not for the novice beekeeper. (Beekeeping 101 held in Fall). We will discuss pest management of the colony, effective management of the hives, harvesting and grades of honey, and the best plants to feed the honey-bees year round. Pat and Rich Yacso, local beekeepers, will teach the advanced portion of pest management and Lisa Hickey, Extension Agent, will introduce and discuss pollinator plants. Registration and advance payment for materials, plant seedlings, and native seed packets due by March 6, which guarantees your spot in class (cash or check only, payable to Friends of Extension).
