COBA "Beginning Beekeeper" classes scheduled to begin January 4 and February 22.

Beekeeping is increasingly popular as people become more concerned about the health of honeybees and in the quality of our food supply. Honeybees contribute to the production of about 1/3 of the food we eat. Thus, many gardeners love having bees nearby to help their plants produce.

We have scheduled 2 "Beginning Beekeeper" classes for 2014. The classes are held during the winter, which allows new beekeepers time to prepare equipment and order bees for the following spring. Both classes cover the same information, and will be taught at the OSU Oklahoma County Extension, 930 N. Portland Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73107
  Class 1: Saturday 1:00-6:00 PM, January 4, 11, 18, and February 15, 2014
  Class 2: Saturday 1:00-6:00 PM, February 22, and March 1, 15, 22, 2014
Experienced beekeepers will give you an overview of beekeeping and help you get started. We will be answering your questions and also showing you the tools of the trade, along with hive and honeybee management.

Enrollment has already begun. The classes will be filled on a first-paid, first-enrolled basis. As long as openings are available, you may specify the class of your choice.

Further information can be found in the COBA Class/Membership Application in the Links section (right side) of this blog. If you still have questions about the classes, please call Rick Schantz at (405) 964-2337 (964-BEES) or send an email to Jay Silver at
