SCC Offers Sustainable Beekeeping Class Beginning April 20


Surry Community College is offering a Sustainable Beekeeping class that runs from April 20 through Aug. 17. The class will be held partly at the Center for Public Safety in Mount Airy, and partly at H & S Bee Supply in Mount Airy.

Topics covered by the class include how and why to feed your bees, honey production and extracting, queen rearing, mite testing and treatment, routine hive inspection, and reading the comb.

Prior bee experience is not necessary. Students must dress accordingly for classes working with bee hives. All participants must wear a bee veil at minimum, but a bee suit is not required. Students are asked to provide their own protective equipment.

The first class will be on Saturday, April 20, at H & S Bee Supply, 231 Airview Drive, Mount Airy, from 2 to 6 p.m. where all other Saturday meetings will be held. Tuesday class meetings will be held at the Center for Public Safety, 1220 State Street, Mount Airy, from 7 to 9 p.m.

Tuition for the class is $127. For more information and to register, contact SCC’s Pilot Center at (336) 386-3618.
