On Saturday, March 22 COMB (Center of Michigan Beekeepers) will hold our 5th annual winter beginners beekeeping classes. The class will be held between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. at the MSU Pavilion located at 4301 Farm Ln. Lansing, MI 48910.
The book “Bee Essentials” by Dr. Lawrence Connor” will be given out and used as a guide for part of the class to each full priced registration. Extra copies can be purchased at the class if needed. This class is 7 hrs of classroom instruction aimed at the newer beekeeper, and will attempt to explain the basics in depth. The objective will be to prepare you to understand terminology, technical discussions and in depth seminars in the future. This will also help to you make educated decisions when you start on your hobby. The main topics discussed will be the types of equipment, practices and techniques you may want to consider.
The full price for the class will be $40.00 and will include the book “Bee Essentials” by Dr. Lawrence Connor with the full priced registration fee. Other family members and students may attend the class for the price of $20.00 each. Additional books can be purchased on request at the class. Dale Woods, Mike Risk and other club members will be instructors for the class.
We will have coffee, and juice in the morning. Lunch details are still pending.
To register send registration checks to:
7575 Hollister rd.
I can’t think of a better thing to do on a Saturday during the winter than to spend the day talking about Honey Bees. The past classes have been a great success and these should be even better. For any other questions please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
