I think this will be easier for you to find than Hardeman's Apiaries. We will unpack your beekeeping supplies at this time and let you get familiar with the equipment before going out in the field. I fully realize that it is hot, but we will be working with live bees. I would suggest long pants, long sleeved shirt and boots during the workshop to help prevent stings. You will receive a veil and gloves in your material.
If you need motel rooms for the workshop, there are several nearby. The Mt. Vernon Inn & Suites is the nearest one to the workshop site. It is located at 205 South Johnson Street in Mt. Vernon. The phone number is 1-877-784-6835. Vidalia is right down the road and has a Quality Inn & Suites located at 1509 E. First Street in Vidalia. The phone number there is 912-538-8100. The Amerinn is also located in Vidalia at 2619 E. First Street and its phone number is 912-537-9000.
I look forward to seeing you Tuesday morning for this very informative workshop.
