From event description posted on their Facebook page:

“Beekeeping for Beginners” was a day long course offer by the Ashland Beekeepers' Association, held on Saturday, November 23, 2013 from 9 AM - 3 PM, at the Ashland Public Library (201 S. Railroad Avenue) in Ashland, Virginia.

The cost of the class was $20 per person and included a copy of "Beekeeping Basics."

Beekeeping for Beginners is designed for anyone eager to learn about bees and bee culture. The class will give a brief overview of the life cycle of bees. It addresses the role of bees and beekeeping in a healthy ecosystem. It summarizes equipment needs for beekeepers; how to purchase bees; and where to locate bee hives. Time and tasks for hive management will also be considered. The class will conclude with a honey tasting and a review of bee-keeping’s more tangible benefits, from honey and wax to propolis and pollen.
