2019 Bee School Enrollment is now Available

Bee School for 2019 is  January 14-February 25.  If you were thinking you wanted to start keeping bees but had no idea what to do, you are in luck.  Enrollment for 2019 Bee School is open. All you have to do is become a member of HCBA (click here) and while you are waiting for Bee School to begin, you can join us in the Apiary at Historic Johnson Farm every Saturday so you will have some hands on knowledge before you go to school.

July 28 Apiary Session

July 28th apiary event will be hive inspections and a sugar roll or two on random hives that just completed Formic Pro treatment for varroa mites. We will discuss methods for removing honey supers and feeding. Please consider joining us . For all those that are interested in apiary sessions, we will continue to have apiary events regardless of the weather. Rain or shine, one or more experienced apiary members will be @ Johnson Farm. If there is rain we will take cover and answer some of the burning questions you may have. So, please join us.  The sessions will be at the HCBA apiary at Historic Johnson Farm
