PSBA Apiary Work Parties:
There is no better way to learn than to do. And in beekeeping, the more hives you can get into, the better. Each hive you encounter will provide a unique learning experience that is sure to stick with you. PSBA has apiary work parties twice a month for 8 months (+/- depending on weather) out of the year. Bring your beekeeping suit and come down to our apiary and see what’s new!
PSBA Monthly Lessons:
Prior to each monthly meeting (meetings are not held every month, please check schedule), PSBA will offer a beekeeping lesson designed to be relevant to the current time of the year. These lessons are geared for the new and experienced beekeeper alike.
Lessons are from 6:30 – 7pm on the fourth Tuesday of the month, followed by announcements and our main speaker. Come and increase you beekeeping skills with PSBA!
