The Association of Southern Maryland Beekeepers is partnering with the online arm of the College of Southern Maryland (which is also a Bee Campus USA!) to offer its beginning beekeeping course this year.
Designed for those interested in getting started in beekeeping.
Subject material including basic honey bee biology and behavior, beekeeping equipment, pests, hive inspection and seasonal management will all be covered.
The overall goal is to provide information that will allow you to learn from your bees as you work the hive. Successful beekeeping is a combination of knowledge and intuition.
Join us for Beekeeping and gain basic knowledge to build confidence and to help ensure overall success.
This class is taught in partnership with the Association of Southern Maryland Beekeepers (ASMB). A 1 year membership with ASMB is included in the cost of the class. Recommended textbook is The Bee Keepers Handbook by Diana Sammataro and Alphonse Avitabile.
