On Saturday January 21st, in partnership with the Southern Tier Beekeepers, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County is offering a Beginning Beekeeping workshop at 1pm in Binghamton, NY. This class will prepare you for getting your own Honey Bees this spring with an overview of equipment, hive products, Honey Bee management and of course Honey Bees themselves. Bring a drink and snack. Registered participants will receive a CD of the presentations, informative beekeeping documents, and links. The Southern Tier Beekeepers will be hosting a "hands-on" session in early spring to give everyone a chance to work a beehive before their purchased bees arrive.
Snow date of January 28th. The cost to attend this workshop is $25, which includes all presenter materials. Priority for spots will be given to veterans in the Southern Tier, but others are welcome to attend as space permits. Travel stipends are available for veterans traveling further than one hour. To apply check the registration page. This material is based upon work that is supported by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under award number 2015-70017-22882.
