Beekeeping class schedules posted.

Dates are starting to be set for upcoming beekeeping classes in the area. Our event calendar has been updated with some of them, and we’ll add more as we hear about them. Of special note is a free beekeeping overview workshop for beginners being held this weekend in Ben Lomond by Mountain Feed and Seed. It’s listed on their Workshops and Events Page, and will be taking place this coming Sunday. It will fill up fast, so if you’re interested in becoming a beekeeper, sign up soon!

No regular Guild meeting this month

Just a reminder that we will not be having a regular Guild meeting this month. Instead, the steering committee will be meeting to organize the meeting topics and speakers for the new year.

We will resume our regular meetings next month on February 1st. If you are interested in getting into beekeeping, the February meeting is the one to attend! We will be talking about starting up you apiary for the new season. The exact meeting agenda is still to be set, but will likely include lots of information for newcomers and for current beekeepers coming out of the winter season!

See you next month!
