After many years of offering a two-night short course for new beekeepers in February, the BCBA is changing the time, place and format of that course.


In 2016, the short course will be Saturday, Feb. 20, at Maryville Church of Christ across the bypass from Foothills Mall.


The main reason for the change is that we have more people come to that course than the room at the library can hold. During this year’s course, we had nearly 150 people, and many people had to stand.


We will begin making the arrangements and putting together the program soon, and we will be calling on the members to help out with this important endeavor.
