Beekeeping Class


Mountain Empire Beekeepers Association will offer “Beginning Beekeeping” at Wytheville Community College in Wytheville, VA, beginning February 4th, 2020.  The five-week class will be held on Tuesday  evenings from 6:30-8:30 pm in Room 201, Galax Hall. The class cost is $45 which includes a textbook.  Families are eligible for a reduced discount. Payment for the class will be accepted at the beginning of the first class, at which time you will receive your textbook and additional handouts.

It is not necessary to have bees to take the class.   Students will be assisted in obtaining bees and equipment.   Additionally, new beekeepers can be assigned a mentor during their first year of beekeeping.

Registration: Pre-registration is highly recommended, as this class does fill up quickly.
