David Kelton called the other day and told me that he has the applications for the Master Beekeeper program ready. They should be on the ABA website by now or, alternatively, you could email him and have him snail-mail a copy to you. The first class and set of tests will be at the Fall meeting in Montgomery. I'm on board!
BTW: one of the components of the Master's level of this course involves being a Master Gardener. This year's classes for the MG program are being scheduled right now - they begin August 17. You can contact Nelson Wynn at the Alabama Cooperative Extension Service for an application.
