Reminder - Beekeeping Class Sunday Feb 8 at 11:00am

From: Jim and J.
Sent on: Saturday, February 7, 2009 10:09 AM

As usual, the beekeeping class will meet at the Arsenal in Central Park at 11:00am.
Try to get there a little earlier, as late arrivals disrupt the class a bit.

This week we will consider how bees expand their colonies and work towards swarming,
and how the beekeeper can manage and leverage this instinct to not just prevent swarming,
but to get a larger crop, make a split, and so on. Lots of stuff not found in books, direct from
the minds of the bees themselves, so bring a pencil.

Also, I see only 18 people "ready for bees".

Is that all who want bees? I had roughly 40, given the responses in class.
Perhaps there are more people partnering on single hives than I thought.
We are close to "last call" on bees, so don't delay.

Currently, the price sits at $75 - $80, and without a bigger order, I don't think we
can push it any lower. (Note that others are asking $90 for a package of bees
of unknown pedigree/source, so we are saving some money by buying as a Co-Op.)
