2016 Classes

The Jersey Beekeepers Association runs one set of 5 theory classes in early spring

before active beekeeping usually starts.  Time, weather and other conditions permitting,

we also try to hold at least one Practical, hands-on (gloved of course) session at an

apiary or two in the summer and give advice to those fortunate enough to have acquired  bees.  

We can also advise on mentors to call for help when the bees don't behave as

they're "supposed" to - after all, they do not read all the books about beekeeping!!
