Thousands of semi-trailers crisscross the country in the dead ofnight delivering goods through the darkness to stores, warehouses and factoriesnationwide. But some of them carry an unsuspected and highly unusual cargo.Honey bees. Tens of billions of them are transported back and forth from oneend of the United States to the other in a unique annual migration that’sindispensable to the feeding of America. One out of every three bites we eat,the growth of almost all our fruits, nuts and vegetables, would be impossiblewithout pollination from bees. A new documentary feature, The Pollinators,directed by Peter Nelson and produced by Sally Roy, Nelson and Michael Reuter,presents the fascinating and untold story. And warns that the bees are inserious danger.

2020 MABA Short Course

An Introduction to Honey Bees and Beekeeping
https://www.memberplanet.com/s/mababc/retreatregistration_44_1_1

Come to the MABA Short Course to learn the fundamentals of beekeeping from our panel of experts. We welcome anyone who is interested in learning about honey bees, even if a hive is not in your immediate future.

Setting up new hives must be done in the spring, generally from March to May. This course is offered in January to give potential beekeepers time to order bees and equipment and prepare a site for hives. Since the course takes place in January, our classroom course will not involve live bees. During the spring and summer months, hands-on experience with live bees will be available to all Short Course students through the MABA Hive Inspection program. In the MABA Hive Inspections, small groups go through a beehive with an experienced beekeeper in one of several MABA hive locations in the Atlanta area.
