Beekeeping 102

S10010 Co. Rd. V, Augusta (5 miles west of Augusta, north of County Road O)
This new program is designed for participants already familiar with the basics of beekeeping who are looking for more hands-on experience. The course will include information about honey collection and proper techniques for “over wintering” your bees. This will be a full afternoon in the field, working directly with honey bees, and participants will need to supply all of their own protective equipment. Due to the nature of the activity and the proximity to bees, all participation is at your own risk.
