Dodie was very patient and answered all my questions. Sometimes having to reexplain things. Such a wonderful lady. The Hands on was awesome. She showed us brood and honey and how to handle the frames. This encourages me in my practice to keep going and get another nuc. I went to the class with specific questions and they were answered. I will sign up for more classes in the future
