Join us for this informal monthly gathering of bee enthusiasts – a chat fest of beekeeping information!
We meet on the LAST Wednesday of every month – mark your calendars! See details below.
All are welcome! No experience necessary, though if you’re really new to it, reading up some before you come is a good idea so you can have questions in mind to share.
SPECIAL PROGRAM for FEBRUARY 2016 GATHERING:
Beehive Benefits to Human Health including Bee Sting/Bee Venom Therapy
During the first half of the usual bee group discussion we will have a special presentation by Bee Group member Sandy vonAllmen!
In the second half we will also discuss the annual co-op purchase of bee packages and nuc’s to restock hives in the Spring.
Presention By: Sandy VonAllmen
Sandy VonAllmen is a retired RN who has kept a few beehives since 1998 in order to make good use of some of the health benefits associated with keeping bees. As her interest in bee venom therapy grew, she took an online Apitherapy Course with a Romanian doctor that expanded her awareness of its benefits. Sandy will discuss the many benefits to health of many byproducts of the hive and, of course, the most interesting to her being the Bee Sting (Bee Venom) Therapy that she also has the most experience with.
* “Bee” on the lookout for more in our series of beginner to advanced workshops throughout the year.
* In Winter we also coordinate a co-op purchase of bee packages and nuc’s to restock hives in the Spring.
* Check out “The BeeHive,” our Resource Page!
