A Gold Star Weekend Intensive includes “Bee Buzz” – Two full days of learning with an excited group of like-minded folks, concerned about our environment and the health of the honey bee. It’s “all bees, all the time”! There are Four Sessions – History, Bee Biology, Bee Diseases and Hive Management – each with relevant presentations narrated with pointed details and amusing anecdotes to make the information come alive.

Be sure to sign up now because seating is limited and is on a first come, first serve basis.
