PVAEC Adult Education is most concerned and committed to the health and safety of our students and community. We recognize that as an adult education program, our learners are adults, and may be more susceptible to the health risks associated with COVID-19. To that end, we are following the guidance of our local school districts, the Maine CDC and the World Health Organization. Our program and all learning centers are now closed in an effort to support social distancing and slow the spread of COVID-19.

All Enrichment classes are now postponed. Registered students will be contacted when new dates are set. If you prepaid for a class not yet begun, please be patient. If you are unable to attend when the class is rescheduled, we can offer you a credit towards a future class (to be used by Dec 31, 2020) or reimburse your registration fee minus the processing fee for online registrations. Registration refunds made by mail, check or cash will take 2+ weeks for processing. If you wish to discontinue a class that already began, we can offer you a pro-rated credit towards a future class (to be used by Dec 31, 2020).

Bees are all the buzz and for good reason, too! Since the late 1990s, beekeepers around the world have observed the mysterious and sudden disappearance of bees, and report unusually high rates of decline in honeybee colonies (greenpeace.org). An estimated ? of all food is pollination dependent, so no bees = no food! In addition to bee conservation and habitat protection, the benefits of beekeeping are numerous. Honey not only tastes great, it also has many health benefits. Produce your own beeswax for candles, creams, lip balms and more. Bees will pollinate your gardens and fruit trees, making them more healthy. Please join Owen Blackden, an experienced local beekeeper for this one-night workshop where he’ll cover the history of beekeeping, present day beekeeping, equipment, and best placement for keeping bees. Owen has been keeping bees for 15 years and is a past president of the Penquis Beekeeper chapter of Maine State Beekeepers.

Please note there is a non-refundable $1.99 credit card registration fee for online registrations. If a class is cancelled for any reason, we are unable to refund the $1.99 registration fee. Call us at 564-6525 to make arrangements for paying by check or cash, and avoiding the non-refundable registration fees. Paying online is safe, easy and convenient so if you're happy to pay the extra $1.99 registration fee, we welcome you to do so.
