2019 March 30 - Intermediate Class

Saturday, 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

MCBA Intermediate Class


Do you have questions coming out of Winter?  Join Tim Moore, Kim Barkfelt, Peggy Garnes and others to learn how to take your beekeeping to the next level.  Swarm Management, Making Simple Splits, Infused Honey, Easy Q Rearing, and Marking Q’s.  Refreshments and snacks will be provided (there will be a short lunch break).  Please go to the rear of the church.  A sign will be posted by the door.


Cost for the class is $40 per person, OR $35 with a food donation of $5 or more.  Medina Presbyterian Church works with Feeding Medina and their Weekenders Program to provide food for youths on weekends.  They can use Peanut Butter and Jelly (in plastic jars), Tuna (in pouches), and SpaghettiOs. Plastic containers or foil pouches reduce the weight of the food carried in backpacks.  MCBA gets to thank the church and we all get to help the community.
