There will be also time for a question and answer session.
 
The class instructor, Christine O’Dell, is a Cobleskill alumna and now a Plant Science faculty member. She has been a beekeeper for 15 years, first in California and now here in New York where she is currently serves on the board of the local Catskill Mountain Beekeeper’s Club.
