Here are your course options:

* 2-Day Course Only ($50) = perfect for someone who has decided they want to be a beekeeper and has access to honey bees and equipment already, or for someone who is interested in becoming a beekeeper and wants to learn the basics before jumping in. This is also a great refresher course for current beekeepers (remember - this course is only $30 for existing members!)

* 2-Day Course + Bees ($245) = a great deal for someone who already has hive equipment but needs the education and honey bees

* 2-Day Course + Bees + Hive Body ($385) = You're ready to jump in! You want the knowledge, the honey bees and the basic hive body!

All 3 course options include a free 2023 membership to the Northeast Georgia Mountain Beekeepers Association. Once you have registered we will contact you with your payment options.
