BEE SCHOOL IS CLOSED!!!

Because of the incredible interest in our 2012 Bee School, we have reached capacity and are unable to take anymore registrations. 

Thanks so much for everyone's interest in our first school.  If you were not able to get in but still want to attend a bee school this spring, a very good school is sponsored by the Audubon Beekeepers Association and is being held on Saturday, March 3, 2012, in Henderson KY.  Here is the link to this school:
