Installing a package

Another educational and enjoyable meeting for local beekeepers. The Q&A session helped answer almost a dozen questions from new beekeepers. John Favaron covered important aspects of package installation.

Thank you Terry Liberman-Smith for your post.

Recap: February 10 Meeting

Thank you!: what a wonderful gathering!   Welcome to all the new beekeepers and a “Nice to see you!” to the experienced beekeepers.  

Presentation: About a dozen different beekeepers presented short, focused Best practices presentation.   It was a refreshing presentation.

Volunteer Opportunities: Refreshment sign-ups w Anne Richardson. Sign up and share the responsibility one month with another beekeeper.                  Mentoring/being Mentored: We are in process of completing a mentor/mentee application.  We will post it as soon as we have it done. We always need more Mentors so even if you have only been keeping bees for a year, volunteer to help a neighbor do their first hive inspections or plan their monitoring calendar or help them spot the queen.  It’s a nice way to meet folks who share your interest in beekeeping.
