Bee­keep­ing course com­ing in Jan­uary in Chat­tooga

The Standard Journal - - LIFESTYLE - From press re­lease

Have you ever thought of be­com­ing a bee­keeper?

Learn about this ful­fill­ing and re­ward­ing hobby. It is eas­ier than you may think, and more re­ward­ing than you might imag­ine.

The Chat­tooga County Bee­keep­ers will present an “In­tro­duc­tion to Bee­keep­ing” sem­i­nar on Satur­day, Jan­uary 12, 2019.

The sem­i­nar will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Agri­cul­ture Build­ing lo­cated at 32 Mid­dle School Road, Sum­merville, Ga., 30747 just off High­way 100.

This in­tro­duc­tion to the fas­ci­nat­ing art and sci­ence of bee­keep­ing teaches you how to get started.

Be­gin­ning with an over­view of bee­keep­ing, you will learn about honey bee bi­ol­ogy, equip­ment and hive tools, start­ing with nucs (nu­cleus hives) vs. pack­ages, honey­bee pack­age in­stal­la­tion, prod­ucts of the hive, and chal­lenges faced dur­ing the first year in the man­age­ment of hives.

The Chat­tooga County Club mem­bers will be on hand to help with any ques­tions about en­ter­ing Bee­keep­ing this spring.

Price for ad­mis­sion is $35 per per­son, and lunch is in­cluded.

Pre-reg­is­tra­tion pay­ment in full is re­quired by Jan. 9, 2019.

Call Randy Rolen 423-304-2714 to pre-regis­ter. No reg­is­tra­tions taken the day of sem­i­nar.

Checks should be mailed to Re­becca Thomas, Chat­tooga Co. Ex­ten­sion Agent, 40 Mid­dle School Road, Sum­merville, Ga., 30747.
