  • This location is shown only to members

Diana Mapes has been kind enough to host an event at her house for the Homesteading Group. She will be building a beehive and invites others to build their own or watch.

There may be a limit on the number of guests for this one. Diana will provide a list of supplies for those who wish to build their own beehive.

    I'd like to thank Monica and Diana for sticking with us and helping us out with our hives. And I hope Joe was able to come back and pick his "pre cut" hive up. :-)

    I was surprised so many people went home so quickly. A few of us stayed (me, Melaine, Kathleen and our gracious host Diana) and were able to go home with well-constructed, beautiful, ready-to-use top bar bee hives. It was a great day!

    Thanks for the amazing group yesterday. I got to spend the day with interesting people, and I now have a top bar beehive. Thanks to Everett for organizing, Diana for opening her home, Christina, Kathleen, and Joe for building. . . Can't wait till the next meeting.

    It was great to meet others who are interested in sustainable living. It is good to share ideas with others who have 'gone before'! Thank you Diana!

    I'm trying to get a list of materials from Diana but if they're not posted in time please show up anyway. She has a home depot right around the corner from her house and we can all make a big trip and buy in bulk what we need. If you have extra wood laying around you may want to bring that as well. See the plans for building a Top Bar bee hive in my link below from an earlier comment.

    See you tomorrow!

    Bring an extra saw if you have one. Here's what we'll be building:

    A top-bar hive like one of these: http://www2.gsu.edu/~biojdsx/main.htm

    Home depot is right around the corner from the meeting place so maybe we'll all meet, decide what materials are needed, grab them, come back and start building.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
