Beekeeping for many is a hobby, art or perhaps a profession with many different facets. Our goal is to teach North Carolina beekeeeping, recruit and mentor new beekeepers. Upon completion of the series and field day, participants will have been exposed to all of the knowledge needed to receive certification upon passing the state exam.
Certified beekeepers will share the history, background, bee anatomy, equipment and products involved with beekeeping. Participants will learn how to get started with beekeeping, manage hives safely and to "think like a bee". In addition, participants will learn how to retrieve and process honey from hives.
This series is instructed by certified beekeepers of the Cabarrus County Beekeeping Association.
Classes are held on Tuesdays from 7-9pm at the NC Cooperative Extension Office, Cabarrus County Center (715 Cabarrus Ave West, Concord, NC 28027).READ THE REST »
