Beekeeping Classes in Pittsburgh Area

Caught the beekeeping bug? You're in luck!  Area beekeeping organizations are offering beekeeping classes in January and February to help you get ready for the spring beekeeping season!  

February 17 and 18 this year.  This is a great place to meet area beekeepers and learn from the best (including our area's Master Beekeepers Joe Zgurzynski and Steve Repasky!).  This seminar is designed for "old" and "new" beeks alike.  Here's a link to the brochure:  Western PA Bee Seminar Brochure.
