Beekeepers group to offer beginner course

Davie County Beekeepers Association will hold its Second Annual Beginner Beekeeping Short Course starting Feb. 15. There are no county residency restrictions. The classes will be held at the N.C. Cooperative Extension Office of Davie, 180 S. Main Street, Mocksville each Thursday from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. for five weeks.

Classes will be taught by Gregory Fariss, owner of Peaceful Valley Honey. Fariss has been keeping bees for over twenty-five years and is a former Apiary Inspector for the Maryland Department of Agriculture. At the conclusion of the classes a Saturday Field Day will be held at a local apiary where participants will have the opportunity to open hives and observe honeybee behavior first hand.

There will be two drawings for a free hive. The drawing will be open to all new beekeepers who attend all five classes and the field day.

The cost for the course is $15. This will cover all of class materials. Please register in advance. To do so contact Susan Fariss at 336-998-2975.
