The plan is for 5 teaching sessions, administration of the optional written portion of the NCSBA certified beekeepers examination at week 6, for those wishing to take it, and 1 week reserved for bad weather rescheduling or a bonus Q&A session.

The cost is $25.00 for individuals or $35.00 per family which includes 1 book/registration, handouts, and membership in the GCBA. North Carolina State Beekeepers Association membership is required for those wanting to participate in the Master Beekeeper program and take the certified beekeepers examination. It is not required to take the beginners course or join the Guilford Beekeepers, but it is strongly encouraged.

We have included a link to our registration form AND the NCSBA membership form on our home page. If you want to enroll in the class AND join the NCSBA, please complete both forms and mail them with 1 check payable to "GCBA" to our treasurer, Ruth Edwards, at her address on our registration form. (We will forward the NCSBA forms and a GCBA check in batches.)

We will follow the weather policy posted on the home page. I plan on announcing that tomorrow night. We developed it about 2 years ago and use it for the classes and for our regular meetings.
