Kelley's December Beekeeping 101 Class

Model #: /Dec-101

The first Saturday in December, Kelley’s offers a class to educate new beekeepers and enhance the learning of those who are more experienced. The class which begins at 9:00 am CST and ends at approximately 4:00 pm is held at the Clarkson, KY facility.  There will be a morning and afternoon break and a 1 hour lunch break (restaurants are within reasonable driving distance). The fee for this class is $30.00 per person and the class size is limited to 50 people. If weather permits, we will do a live inspection of an active hive. These classes will be taught in December, January, February and March.
