The Door County Beekeepers Club is holding a beginner’s class for those interested in picking up the hobby. The class will focus on the first year of beekeeping and the various decisions that must be made while setting up, including choosing what type of bees one desires to keep and where one intends to keep them. Max Martin, a member of the club who has been keeping bees for 20 years, is the leader of the class. He said getting and staying into beekeeping is a lot easier than it might seem, especially with the assistance of the club.
The class will be held Saturday, January 12th, and runs from 8 a.m. to about noon. There is a cost of $35 to be paid at the door and the class is limited to the first 25 reservations. More information can be found at the Door County Beekeepers Club website.
