What we're about

Putting together a first hive is a process that combines knowledge about equipment with beekeeping skills.

This discussion/class combines both in a casual atmosphere where you can nosh and have a cup of tea or a glass of mead. Come by for the opportunity to learn and talk about about the kinds of hardware that is available and how you might want to use it. Talking with others is a great confidence builder! We will generally meet at Oberon's Three Penny Tavern (http://www.oberonstavern.com) on the plaza in Ashland (click link for more info about venue) on the THIRD TUESDAY OF THE MONTH. Find us in the BACK ROOM of Oberon's from 6:30 to 8PM
