Beekeepers school held in Haywood

Written by 

A beginning beekeepers school will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Haywood County Extension Service in Waynesville.  

There will be complete informational handouts and discussions about the biology of bees, how to assemble and maintain a hive, how to buy and install bees, the diseases and treatments of bee colonies, how to use smokers and other equipment, and much more. Refreshments will be provided during midmorning and midafternoon breaks. Lunch will be on your own.  There will also be door prizes and a package of bees (an $80 value) will be given out. 

The class is $35 per person (or $45 for a family), which includes a year’s membership in the local beekeepers’ association. In addition, a field day is planned for late April for hands-on learning in an apiary nearby. The Haywood Beekeepers Association is sponsoring the event.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
