“The Beekeepers Short Course is an exciting and informative way to introduce the public to the amazing world of beekeeping,” a spokesman said. “This course will provide basic information on the benefits of honeybees to society, from honey to health, and guidance for beginning and maintaining a colony of honeybees. Those who attend will also be able to enjoy the fellowship of beekeepers of all ages.”
