*** ALWAYS CHECK WEBSITE TO SEE IF HANDS ON CLASSES (Class #2) ARE STILL ON. We can’t work the bees if it’s too cold, too wet, too rainy, too windy, etc. I try to email everyone signed up for classes a day or two before to let you know that the class is still on. When in doubt, please contact Tanya below to make sure class is still happening.
