The Blount County Beekeepers Association will be hosting a “short-course” on beekeeping February 10 and 11.

The two day course will be a basic introduction to beekeeping including: where to purchase bees, equipment needed to keep bees, where to locate your hives, etc.  The course is perfect for those interested in becoming beekeepers, or anyone who wants to learn more about the hobby.

The course will begin each night at 6:30 at the Blount County Library in Maryville.

There is no charge for this course, and you do not have to sign up in advance. The public is welcome to attend
