Beekeeping and this class require both a time and a financial commitment.
TIME: This mentorship program will meet once a month on nights or weekends for a few hours in a classroom session, sometimes with a follow-up session in the bee yard.
FINANCIAL: The cost for the program will be around $450.00. The cost depends on our suppliers' bee and equipment pricing for 2017, and will include everything needed to establish a Spring bee colony. Your training is a free service of our association.
We encourage you to attend our TVBA meetings held at 7 pm Eastern time, on the fourth Monday of each month at the Red Bank Presbyterian Church, 4320 Dayton Blvd. What you learn at our meetings will help you in the class.
