“Introduction to Bees and Beekeeping” will focus on the principles of beekeeping. Those principles include the history of beekeeping, honeybee biology, plant and pollinator relationship, and essential equipment and requirements.
Dan Cropper, a beekeeper from West Plains, will teach the course using curriculum developed by the University of Missouri.
“This high-quality program will offer both classroom instruction and mentoring opportunities for participants,” said David Burton, county program director for Greene County Extension.
The Missouri Master Beekeeper certification program consists of six levels: Beginner Beekeeper, Apprentice Beekeeper, Journeyman Beekeeper, Junior Master Beekeeper, Master Trainer, and Master Beekeeper. By the end of this first course, individuals will be able to help experienced beekeepers in the management of hives.
Individuals must have one year of experience rearing bees and join a local beekeeping club before taking an exam to move up to the next level. Experienced beekeepers can test up through the first two levels of the program if they have three or more years of experience.
This introduction class is for any individual interested in learning beekeeping.
