Join Us in a Hive Inspection at a Mentoring Apiary

MABA Hive Inspections are a valuable opportunity for members to go through a hive with an experienced beekeeper at one of our Mentoring Apiaries in the Atlanta area. These events are free for MABA members. The non-member fee is $15.

Special thanks to Shannon Henson for creating this video from a MABA hive inspection led by Steve Esau on the Tapestry Community property in Ormewood Park on May 14, 2016. To view the video at YouTube, click here.
