2023 Beekeeping Course
Experience the Magic of Honey Bees this Year!
In Person at the Norfield Grange
12 Goodhill Rd, Weston CT 06883
The Back Yard Beekeepers Association will hold its annual Bee School on four consecutive Mondays January 9, 16, 23, and 30 with a snow date of February 6, 2023. Each class session will be recorded and the recordings will be sent to all registrants within a few days after each class.
Bee School is a fine way to either get a solid introduction into beekeeping or to fill in some gaps in what you know already that will strengthen your beekeeping skills. We will cover safety issues, types of equipment, evolving roles of the worker bee, honeybee pests and diseases and more.
The BYBA offers Bee School as the first step in supporting new beekeepers. Our goal is to connect each "graduate" with a mentor, encourage participation in the club's many workshops, and welcome the new members into our monthly "New Bee" zoom discussions. We hope to see you at our monthly meetings which feature both regional and nationally known speakers on aspects of beekeeping. Starting with Bee School, the BYBA is all about education and support.
