Beginning Beekeepers Class

For your friends who are wishing to start beekeeping, or for those of you who have discovered that there is really a lot to learn about keeping bees alive and healthy, we have scheduled Tina Sebestyen to teach beginning beekeeping this spring. You may remember her, she spoke at our club meeting about top bar hives last spring. Tina has been keeping bees for 11 years now in top bar, langstroth, and the long hive, and has been teaching beginning beekeeping for 6 years. She’ll give you the details without the fluff, and you won’t fall asleep, she promises to keep you on your toes. There are too many topics to list them all here, but this will be what you need to know for your first and second year of beekeeping; everything from choosing race of bee and hive location, proper feeding of bees, and recognizing healthy bees or bee diseases to those things you didn’t know you would need to know like how to move a hive, stop robbing, and comb management. She is working to reserve the rec center in Windsor. The tentative dates are March 9th and 10th.

About NCBA – Northern Colorado Beekeepers Association

The Northern Colorado Beekeepers Association (NCBA) is an organization of both hobbyist and commercial beekeepers.  We exist to provide a forum for education in beekeeping both to our members and to the general public, and for exchange of ideas and experiences.  We also enjoy some ability to provide savings in bees by purchasing as a group.  We are affiliated with the Colorado State Beekeepers Association.  We meet once a month with the above objectives in mind.  Each meeting strives to discuss one or two subjects of interest in beekeeping.  Whenever possible we will discuss beekeeping and hive maintenance activities appropriate for the next month.  We also like to provide time for members to discuss beekeeping among themselves.  Once a year, usually around January, we conduct a multi-session beginning beekeeping class.  On completion of the class, we offer you the opportunity to join the association, to order bees, and we offer you a mentor to help you get off to a good start.  If you have any interest in keeping bees, we encourage you to join us. We believe joining a beekeeping association such as ours is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to start beekeeping. By joining now you will receive our news letter as well as notification of upcoming classes and meetings.  Dues are modest and affiliates members with the Colorado State Beekeepers Association. See the pages about future and past meetings for examples of meeting content..
