The Northwest Indiana Beekeepers Association strives to help inform the public
about bees and beekeeping by offering a Beekeeping School each spring.
The school comprises of approximately five (5) classes throughout the spring months.
Though we call them classes, each short session is a loose collection of information
that will take the novice from starting beekeeping to a confident level,
capable of winterizing the colonies for next year's season.
Sign-up for the school begins each year at the local county fair
and runs until the first class each spring.
If you would like to attend this year's class email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
The classes are offered free of charge.
Each student is required to wear proper safety equipment (veil/gloves)
if he/she is to participate in field activities. Quality of these items varies
While this participation is not mandatory, it does greatly improve one's appreciation for the craft.
So you are not surprised with any hidden costs,
We strongly suggest that anyone with even the slightest interest
sign-up for the classes as they are free.
This has been a very good family project for many members.
