Bee School Apiary Session March 17  March 18, 3pm

Our next Apiary Session is March 18  at 3pm weather permitting at Historic Johnson Farm, 3346 Haywood Rd, Hendersonville, NC 28791 and we will be installing a nuc.

The weather is not cooperating with us but we really want to have the apiary session on transferring your nuc to a hive box so we have decided to change the day and time.  The Apiary Session will be Sunday March 18 at 3 pm.  We know the change will knock some people out because they have already made plans and even though it is supposed to be warm enough on Saturday, the forecast calls for 18+ mph winds.  
We hope to see you Sunday but understand if you can not make it.

As always, the session is  weather dependent.    Bring a veil so you can participate.

If you plan on attending the session, please let us know who and how many will be there.  send an email to
