Starting Right With Bees
NEOBA hosts a series of beginning beekeeping classes every year in the fall in order to educate those in our community who would like to become beekeepers. Greg Hannaford is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable beekeepers in our state and he does an excellent job of teaching these classes. You will learn in-depth knowledge and skills to be successful for your first year of beekeeping and beyond. The classes end with a hive construction day with help from seasoned NEOBA members. The cost is $75.00 for an individual or $95.00 for a family (immediate family only) and includes the book Starting Right With Bees, and initial membership to NEOBA. (For fall classes, membership renewal is due the January following first anniversary of your class.)
If you would like to register for an upcoming class, please complete the following form so we have your information, then be sure to make payment for the class using your method of choice. If you have already registered but have not paid yet, please visit our make payment page. We hope to see you soon!
NOTE: The November 2013 class is only open to adult attendees, sorry no children. Thank you for your cooperation!
