Everyone is welcome!

Location of the Grant County Beekeepers meeting:
The Commons: Center for Food Security & Sustainability
501 E. 13th Street (between Corbin and Swan).

The program will include topics for thinking about the upcoming beekeeping season led by Ken Sexton:
• Starting a new hive (and ordering bee packages, Nucs, whole hives if desired)
• Inspection of hive and maintenance (cleaning/repairs/parts replacements)
• Inspection of hive for health assessment and signs of predators or pests/disease
• Ordering new queens or replacement bees packages or Nucs, (if desired)
• Building hive bodies and frames from parts if needed (quick demo using donated equipment)
• New gadgets to help with beekeeping?

Other Meeting Agenda topics will include:
• Design of an inexpensive B&W pocket calendar for beekeepers and bee-gardeners for monthly reminders for general tasks through the year
• Design of a Calendar for the next year for fund-raising featuring photos of bees and beekeeping
• Building of starter hives using materials donated to our club to be raffled to raise funds for the production of a mural to be prepared on Broadway
• Possible “Club Hive” to be started at The Commons, for group lessons in beekeeping
• Participation at the Farmers Market where the club produces/cooks products (food and crafts) from products from other vendors and co-op sold products

Invited: Everyone
