BEE School 2022
What’s the Buzz About
VIRTUAL Bee School!

Discover the fascinating hobby of beekeeping! Join us for a 7-week interactive, online ZOOM course, presented by experienced beekeepers from the Knox-Lincoln County Beekeepers (KLCB) and Maine’s State Bee Inspector. Whether you have an interest in becoming a backyard beekeeper for your gardening passion, or wish to consider keeping hives for a honey crop, or simply desire to learn more about the fascinating community of honey bees, attending a local bee school will provide you with a basic foundation to get started. This course is designed for first and second year beekeepers.

Beekeeping basics, equipment needs, seasonal management, honey bee diseases and pest management will be presented. Not only will you learn about what is needed to care for these incredibly important insects, you will meet other community members who share your interest in beekeeping. If Covid-19 transmissions and positivity rates decrease significantly in the spring, we may be able to have one or two face to face classes either prior to the end of the course or at a later date in the summer.

Classes will be held online via Zoom on consecutive Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Participants are required to attend a FREE prerequisite session titled “So You THINK You Want To Be A Beekeeper?” on February 16, 2022 at 6:30 pm. Bee School will officially begin February 23, 2022 and continue through April 6, 2022. Presentations will be interspersed with prerecorded demonstrations and break out rooms. Abundant time will be allowed for questions and answers.

The course fee is $60.00 which includes a textbook, emailed handouts and a pro-rated yearly membership to KLCB.
