Bees are crucial to help protect our environment, and you might be able to start a hive in your own back yard. Jessica Martin, Treasurer of the Hampden County Beekeepers Association tells us more.
The HCBA will be offering a beginning bee school program that will cover everything an aspiring beekeeper would need to know to start beekeeping on a hobbyist level.
Membership to the Hampden County Beekeepers Association is included for all attendees so they can attend more advanced classes later in the year.
The classes run January 12th, February 16th and March 16th from 9 AM – 3 PM at Longmeadow High School, 95 Grassy Gutter Road in Longmeadow. For more information, visit the Hampden County Beekeepers Association online at hcbee.org.
