Mark your 2018 calendars because we’re excited to announce a new offering for our members to learn and discuss beekeeping. In addition to our regular meetings and workshops, this new discussion group is your opportunity to engage with knowledgeable and experienced beekeepers to get answers to issues of concern in your beekeeping.
Each session will start with an open question and answer period followed by a seasonally appropriate topic discussion to help guide you through the beekeeping year. Open to every beekeeper regardless of your experience or the type of equipment you use; these sessions will support your beekeeping practice and help you get the critical information you need to be successful.
We have secured a centrally located meeting room at the Rockfall Foundation in Middletown. The meetings will be held on the second Thursday of each month beginning on January 11th and continue through the year. January’s topic discussion will be on the nutritional needs of an overwintering colony and how to formulate a simple but appropriate supplemental food.
The Rockfall Foundation is located at 27 Washington Street in Middletown. The foundation operates in the historic deKoven House where there is ample parking and convenient public lots for additional parking.
The group will be led by Bill Hesbach, the owner of Wing Dance Apiary in Cheshire, who is an EAS Certified Master Beekeeper and a graduate of the University of Montana’s Master Beekeeping Program. Bill is also an author and his writings on beekeeping can be found in Bee Culture magazine. For more information contact Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-430-2895.
So bring your questions, and we hope to see you there!
