Jan. 18: See What the BUZZ is About! Sign Up for Basic Beekeeping


This is creating quite a “Buzz”! The Parkland Beekeepers Association, with the help of Mineral Area College and the University of Missouri Extension, is hosting a basic beekeeping class from 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. 

Saturday, January 18, 2014. It will be held on campus in the North College Center. 

Anyone with an interest in honey bees or thinking about becoming a beekeeper will benefit from this instruction. Topics covered will include the organization of the honey bee colony, beekeeping equipment, the different ways a person can obtain bees of their own, seasonal management for honey production, and keeping healthy colonies. 

The $25.00 registration fee, per person or couple, includes a one year membership in the Parkland Beekeepers Association. There will be snacks and door prizes and lots of opportunity to visit with established beekeepers in the area. 

For reservations or questions call: Pat Brady-573/756-1266 or Gregg Hitchings 573/880-2899.
