Education

The Club prides itself on providing members on-going education, for first time and experienced beekeepers. Our intent is to provide education during each meeting and, on selected meeting dates, provide more in-depth, hands-on style education at the “Meeting Before the Meeting” (MBM). All education topics and instructors are subject to change at any time.

A committed group of club members have scoured the internet to find some of the best videos to make your search for education easier. If you see a topic missing or some bad information please leave a comment or contact us. Our intent is to provide accurate and complete information.
