Beekeeping Class Sunday March 29th 11:00am at 33 Flatbush Ave Brooklyn

Folks:

As mentioned at the last class, this Sunday's 11:00am class will NOT be at the Arsenal, but will be in Brooklyn at the "Green Spaces" facility.

The address is 33 Flatbush Ave Brooklyn NY, and it is the old "Metropolitan Exchange Bank". It is just down the block from the Nevins St subway station. It is near all of the following subway stops:

Nevins [2,3,4,5]
Dekalb [B,M,Q,R]
Fulton St [G]
Lafayette Ave [C]

Please make others aware of the class location, as not everyone is as "wired" as you and I are.

This week's class will review several different approaches to hiving packages, and look at some of the video one can find on the internet to compare and contrast good from bad technique, and laughable from professional handling of bees. We will also do a post-mortem on a hive that died over winter, and place our bets in sealed envelopes until the lab analysis comes back from the USDA which should tell us what did and did not kill the hive.

We will also review the bids from the various vendors and work out how money we saved by banding together.

Be prepared to toss a five-dollar bill in the hat to pay the Green Spaces people.
They want some Green for their Space, hence the name. :)
