Colonial Beekeepers Association will conduct a Beekeeping 201 Class on Saturday, December 5, 2015, at the Tabb Library in Yorktown, VA. This class is free and seating is limited. The class will start at 10:00 AM and run until about 4:00 PM.
Colonial Beekeepers "Getting Started in Beekeeping" presentation will be a great opportunity for those of you considering beekeeping to come out and see what it is all about! We will have a meet and greet informational meeting where folks can come out and just consider whether beekeeping makes any sense for themselves and their situation. A try-before-you-buy session, if you will,
We are a group of beekeepers from the Peninsula and Middle Peninsula areas of Virginia. Members range from as far south as Hampton, to as far north as Middlesex, to as far east as Mathews and all points between. Our purposes are many:
*Enjoying the wonders of nature
*Fostering the keeping, efficient management, and preservation of honey bees
*Providing pollination for local agriculture
*Informing members and our communities of the ecological and economic benefits of honey bees
*Educating members in the science and techniques of apiculture (Being "beekeepers" and not "bee-havers")
Regular meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month, from 7 PM to 9 PM, in the Fellowship Hall of St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Yorktown, VA.
