The 12th Annual (Covid Delayed) Beekeeping School, hosted by the Central Texas Beekeepers in Brenham, will be held on Saturday, March 26, 2022.
The one day school will feature beginning, intermediate and advanced classes. There will be topics for all levels of experience.
Beginning topics will include What Should I Buy, Where To Get My Bees, and How To Extract Honey. There will be a 3-hour Beekeeping 101 class that all beginners are encouraged to attend.
Those that have had bees for several years can attend classes on Botteling and Selling Honey, How To Raise Queens and Managing Pests of Bees.
For the advanced beekeeper, there will be sessions on The Biology Of Mating, Bee Communication (Pheromones) and Growing From Sideliner To Commercial.
Other topics of interest to all levels will be Texas Apiary Laws, The Healing Effects of Honey, Apitherapy, and Planting for Pollinators. There will even be a separate 5- hour class on Top Bar Hives.
For those interested in Flow Hives, we will have a live Zoom session from Australia with Stuart Anderson, inventor of the Flow Hive. Stuart has donated a Flow Hive that will be given away as a door prize.
A catered Bar-B-Que meal is included with the event and major door prizes will be awarded at the end of the day. The last time the school was held, there were 660 folks in attendance.
Registration for the school is $65 with a second adult from the same family being $60. Students are $25 while children below 12 are $10.
