What we're about
This meetup is for people who are beekeepers, wanna-be beekeepers, gardeners, and anyone interested in learning more about bees and pollinators. We will discuss beekeeping techniques, how to deal with mites, and beetles, how to harvest honey and other beekeeping topics. We will also trade secrets on where to go for the lowest shipping costs for equipment or do a group purchase to save money. For wanna-be beekeepers, this group will be a great way to meet beekeepers to possibly shadow and learn more before becoming a beekeeper.
If you are a gardener or farmer, but not looking to keep bees, I welcome you to join and learn how to plant for pollinators, when to spray pesticides and herbicides so that you affect few pollinators (even organic methods can be lethal to bees), and possibly meet a beekeeper to keep bees on your property.
All people who are interested in learning about bees and pollinators are encouraged to join and learn more. This is not just a group for beekeepers, but anyone who loves pollinators and wants to learn more about them.
