Learn to be a beekeeper

We provide 3 opportunities to attend the class.
We meet in-person at 5:30p on the 2nd Mon of each month (Jan thru Oct).
We meet at Fort Worth Botanic Garden, 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd, Ft Worth, 76107.
We stop at 6:20p, so we can all attend the monthly MBA mtg.
We repeat the lesson in a live online session, 3 days later on Thursday at 7p, since some people can't make the Monday class in-person.
You are welcome to attend in-person & again online.
After the class, we email to all class members: 1) all pdf charts with notes, & 2) a video recording of the online class.
So you have a 3rd opportunity to get all the info, & review material at your convenience.

Learn about bee biology, hive types, equipment, protective clothing, obtaining & installing bees, inspecting, diagnosing & solving problems, harvesting & sales, benefits of bees & beekeeping, & AG exemptions.
A text book is included.
There will be field trip opportunities to inspect beehives & gain valuable experience.
The teacher is happy to answer questions outside of class, thru emails, texts, or calls.
She has kept bees since 2012 in her backyard in Ft Worth.

The sooner you start, the sooner you will harvest your own honey, improve your gardens and plants, and help the bees contribute to the health of the environment.

Class is $125 for Members.
A 2nd person in the household can join the class for $95 (sharing the book).
Please join MBA to take the class ($25 for 1 year, or $40 for 2 years).
