TVBA hosted a Beginning Beekeeper Class on 2/11/17 at the Moulton Church of Christ.
A group of 22 folks learned about the steps for getting bees through their first year:
- Bee Biology
- Hive Building & Supplies
- Sources for Bees
- Installing Bees in the Hive
- Inspecting Bees
- Feeding Bees
Thanks to Larry & Debbie Mote, several suppliers offered prizes for the class. The TVBA Club provided the grand prize, a nuc of Buckfast Bees from Kaleb Scott Apiaries.
The tentative date for the Intermediate Class is April 15, 2017.
