Now taking registrations for our 2017
Introduction to Beekeeping Class
The LVBA will again be offering an Introduction to Beekeeping Class this spring to get new beekeepers or anyone interested in helping our honey bees get up to speed. We'll be meeting on four Wednesday nights (Feb 8 & 22 and March 8 & 22) at the Rothrock Library on the campus of Lehigh Carbon Community College in Schnecksville, PA. We will also make a trip to our club apiary on the LCCC campus to work with some live colonies in late March. The sessions will cover different topics each week including honey bee biology and colony structure, choosing the right hive, a year in the life of a beekeeper, diseases and pests and how to handle them, "Green Beekeeping" techniques, and a review of all the hive products that you will enjoy. You will also learn about the options for reserving your bees and getting the right hardware and clothing for you to get started in the spring.
See the brochure linked below for all the details and click on the registration form link to print it out and send along with your payment. The class is $65 for adults with reduced rates for younger people and students. Refreshments and handouts are included.
Receive a $5 discount on registration if you register at or before our "Informational Meeting" on January 21st. See the Class Brochure for details.
