Bee School





WCBA Bee School will begin March 7, 2019 and run for eight Thursdays from 7pm to 9:30pm at Grafton High School Auditorium, 24 Providence Road, Grafton, MA.


This school is appropriate for beginners and experienced beekeepers, individual or family (we encourage every beekeeper to attend two years!). The fee is $35 per student. Each enrollment includes a pro-rated WCBA membership through December 31, 2019 and an email subscription to the WCBA quarterly newsletter. You will also receive a separate binder with a class syllabus and additional information, to use as a place to keep classroom handouts. An additional reference text is recommended and can be purchased separately -- see below.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Your Bee School registration will include a membership for 2019 so there is no need to sign up for a separate membership as well. If you are already a member and are planning to attend Bee School, you do not need to renew your membership for 2019 since Bee School registration will take care of that.


You can find the 2019 class schedule and syllabus here.
