Back by popular demand…the Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will team up again with the Chatham County Beekeepers’ Association to conduct an 8-week Beekeeping School in early 2019.

We do these beekeeping schools to introduce others to the joys of beekeeping, and to increase the number of skilled beekeepers in our region. Come join us and find out how fun and rewarding beekeeping can be!

The school will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Chatham County Agriculture & Conference Center in Pittsboro. Classes run from January 8-February 26, 2019 (with a spring field session on April 6). The primary audience for the school is beginner beekeepers, but others may wish to come for a refresher.

The cost for the entire 8-week school is $100 and includes a book AND a resource notebook.

To view the course outline and register, go to the Growing Small Farms website.

The deadline for registration is November 20, 2018.
