    Announcing the North Central Washington Beekeepers Association 2018 Apprentice class taught by Steve Foley.

    This 12-hour class will cover a basic introduction into beekeeping, equipment required, and common practices. Class will include some lectures, some time to get hands-on with equipment, and live bee keeping demonstrations, weather permitting. An optional written test at the end will allow participants to be certified as apprentices under the Washington Master Beekeeping program. This class will provide a great start for  keeping bees this season!

    The class will be held on March 10, March 17 and March 24 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM

    The cost of the class is $20 for members of the NCWBA. This year we are requiring that you become a member of the club before registering. A club membership provides support throughout the beekeeping season and access to club resources (books, videos, honey extraction gear, etc.) and is $20/year for individuals and $25 for families. Family Memberships may purchase multiple class tickets.

    You can also pay cash or check but payments must be received in full before we can register you.  Please contact for more information.

    An electronic (PDF) format of the course material will be provided free of charge. Hard copy booklets are available at an additional cost of $15 each. A link will be provided to you once we have it available.

    Part of our mission is to share beekeeping with as many people in the valley that we can. If there is anything we can do to make this class more accessible, please contact us directly at and we will see what we can do to get you involved.

    The class will be held at The Henry Building 120 Cottage Ave, Cashmere WA.
