If you have the desire to become a beekeeper or just want to be better educated about honeybees, please join Rick Harty at Mayland Community College (Main Campus) for a 24-hour course on beekeeping. The students will learn about the history and biology of the honeybee, the equipment needed to start a hive of honeybees, the honeybee’s association with agriculture, the threats to the colony such as CCD, the sales of more than just honey, and concluding with hands-on experience at the Harty Farm Bee Yard.
