The moment you have all waited for…a date has been decided for our first Beginning Beekeeper Workshop! The Central Mississippi Beekeepers Association will be hosting the workshop and field day on March 14th in Jackson, MS. The morning will be filled with informative lectures from seasoned beekeepers and guests such as Dr. Jeff Harris from Mississippi State University. After lunch we will have a “field day” with live colonies for you newcomers to try your hand at working our little fuzzy livestock. Check out the Events tab for details and the Resources tab for a downloadable registration form.
I have also posted information about an Intermediate Beekeeper Workshop, which will be held in April in McComb, MS. This will also be an all-day event, geared towards beekeepers in their second or third year of managing colonies. Again, live colonies will be featured, so bring your hats and veils!
