The new beekeeper class scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 21, has been cancelled because of the weather.
The class scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 28, will be an all-day class, and participants are asked to bring a sack lunch.
These classes, conducted by veteran beekeepers Stacey Adair and José Ashbrook, are as hands-on as possible and will tell you a lot about what goes on inside the hive and about what you should be doing as a beekeeper.
The Feb. 28 class is at Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church, and the woodenware class on March 28 is at the Masonic Hall in Alcoa.
