The Merrimack Valley Beekeepers Association (MVBA) hosts the preeminent beekeeping course in Southern New Hampshire and Northeast Massachusetts. Our courses cover everything you need to know to start a hobby or small business in beekeeping. The classes are taught by experienced beekeepers and are meant to be interesting to all ages as well as fun. They include lectures, presentations, demonstrations, and videos. And you will have the opportunity to purchase equipment and bee packages from local suppliers.

Bee School is presented in two parts, Basic Bee School and Intermediate Bee School

2020 Basic Bee School will meet each Tuesday evening at 6:30 to 8:30 PM from March 3, 2020 to March 31, 2020 at St. James United Methodist Church located at 646 Daniel Webster Highway in Merrimack, NH. An optional video will be presented at 5:30 PM. Registration is open now. Basic Bee School always fills up quickly. We maintain a wait list, but we urge you to sign up promptly to avoid disappointment.

2020 Intermediate Bee School, for experienced beekeepers will be held in Spring 2020. Due to the corona virus pandemic, bee school will be presented via internet meetings. This format will enable us more time to delve into more advanced topics.
