UPDATE ON MCC BEEKEEPING CLASSES 2018!!!

OK beehooligans.
I got the most recently updated class schedule for all of the beekeeping classes being offered through Metro Community College at the new North Express location.
 
The classes are all on Saturdays from 10 am till 1 pm beeginning April 7th, 2018.
 
The classes are NOT listed in the paper or online Spring catalog for MCC due to timing of class listing. You can still register for the classes listed on the Bee Smart website by calling the phone number(s) listed in the class description.
 
Please visit the Bee Classes page and go to April and May on the embedded calendar to get the class information for each class being offered.
 
The Applied Beekeeping class, a hands-on class, will bee the only class NOT at the North Express MCC location. It will take place at the new teaching apiary at Scatter Joy Acres instead.

Spring Beekeeping Classes at MCC

Hello folks.  As promised, I am getting the beekeeping classes to be offered in the Spring quarter at the new MCC location here on the Bee Smart beekeeping project website.

If you go starting at the April 2018 calendar on the Bee Classes page here, you will find the Saturday classes listed which include the class registration number for each class and the phone number to call to register for the classes.

The classes were entered after the listing date for the catalog so unfortunately you won’t bee able to register online or see the classes listed in the Spring catalog.  We expect to have the next series of classes included in the catalogs and able to enroll online for the Summer quarter.

Don’t worry if you only find the April classes listed at first.  As the other beekeeping classes are updated, I will add them to the calendar.

Bees at beekeeping classes

So I have verification that beginning this April I am teaching basic level beekeeping classes at Metro Community College this Spring again.  There’s a full line up of in depth classes that include plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion in each one.

We’ll hold the classes at the new MCC location on North 30th St just somewhat North of Cummings St. If I recall hearing correctly.  I’ll post the specific address when I post the actual class line up in the near future.

While I liked the location at DoSpace, this location will allow me to bring a live observation hive to each class for up close inspection and demonstration of each topic as we’re discussing it.  I wasn’t able to bring the live bees into the building when the classes were at DoSpace due to building management concerns.

So, beekeeping classes, check.  Live bees at classes, check.  Wide variety of topics covered related to apicultural success, check.

I am looking forward to providing information and camaraderie to fellow bee people this coming Spring.  Hope to see you there.

Beekeeping Classes Resume This Spring At MCC

I am kicking off a new basic level series of beekeeping classes at Metro Community College this Spring in April.  Unfortunately, the classes didn’t make the cut for the catalog but they will be available.  I will post all the relevant registration information on this website when the class details are released.

These are not short version classes but are offered in detail with comprehensive information about each subject to help beekeepers to make more informed decisions in their apicultural efforts.
