We’re getting closer to spring, and that means if you’ll be receiving new packages this year, it’s getting “real” in terms of getting your hives and equipment ready. Fear not! We’ll be discussing woodenware. And if you haven’t yet arranged to buy a package, fear not! We’ll be discussing where to source bees.
As always, our regular monthly meetings are open and we’re a friendly group, so don’t feel like you have to already be a member to come check us out. We’re excited about bees and we love to share that with everyone who is interested.
6:45 – Check-in and membership renewal
7:00 – Bee-ginner Beekeeping Q&A – Todd will be discussing woodenware for your hives and where to source bees. If you’re thinking about becoming a beekeeper, this is valuable information. Learn in March what you need to be ready for April.
7:45 – Refreshments and club announcements
8:00 – A representative from the state Dept. of Agriculture will present on what they’re doing to support local beekeepers and how the agency is responding to the invasive Asian giant hornet that has now been spotted in B.C. and Washington.
