The six-week Intermediate Beekeeping course beginning on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 is intended for the beekeeper with at least a season or two of keeping bees. This course covers fewer topics more deeply than the Beginner’s class and concentrates on keeping bees successfully in this area. There will be a private Facebook group for the class to expand on discussions started in class, and for the instructor to post additional articles and video links, etc.
