Beginner Beekeeping

RPBBA is excited to announce we will be hosting a Beginner Beekeeping course in 2023. We are coordinating with Huguenot Beekeepers Association on dates to alternate weekends with their course. Once we have concrete dates, we will open an enrollment form. Please bee on the lookout for it!

In the meantime, the 2022 flyer is posted below to give interested future beekeepers a feel for the course. 2023 will have minimal changes. We are looking forward to educating our 2023 Beginner Beekeepers! Thank you.

*Our sign-up form has been removed from this site as our 2022 course is now full.

We are looking forward to the start of class. We hope everyone enrolled has their calendar marked already. Just in case anyone needs a reminder, the course will begin this Saturday, Jan 22nd at 9am. Add to Google Calendar

Unfortunately, the renovation for the Nature Center at Rockwood Park is still underway. Our 1st class session has been relocated to Dandelion Springs Apiary. The address for Dandelion Springs is

11011 Beaver Bridge Rd

Chesterfield, VA 23838

Surely everyone has thought of this already. However, so it does not go unsaid: please come prepared to wear a mask. Several of our instructors are older and as we will be in a smaller indoor space. We want very much to host the class while also doing our part to keep everyone healthy.

We apologize for the location change for the 1st session of class. We are very much looking forward to the start of the course. We look forward to meeting everyone Saturday, getting to know you, and helping you along your beekeeping journey.
