PCBA is pleased to have member Kenny Pearl, who begin the first Bee Suits for Kids Program in MA to help its members involve kids in beekeeping. As we all know, a bee suit is a must have item for beekeeping. We also know that bee suits are not cheap and that kids outgrow their clothes quickly. This is where the Bee Suits for Kids program comes in. The club has purchased several kid sized bee suits and is making them available, on loan, to members on a month to month basis. Here’s how it works:
The kids are our future beekeepers and your club wants to do everything possible to help get them started at an early age and to help make beekeeping a family tradition.

lasting contributions in starting the Bee Suits for Kids program for PCBA, and mentoring other clubs to begin similar programs.
