What is included in your class, 3 consecutive Saturday classes. All three classes should be attended to get the full benefit of your beginning beekeeping education. Each Saturday class will include 3-4 hours of detailed instruction with some time at the end for additional questions. You are also enrolled to a bee class group discussion email where questions, ideas and sharing can be viewed and commented on by your fellow classmates and your instructor.
