Colonial Beekeepers will be hosting four "Getting Started in Beekeeping" presentations in October 2017. This will be a great opportunity for those of you considering beekeeping to come out and see what it is all about! We will have a meet and greet informational meeting where folks can come out and just consider whether beekeeping makes any sense for themselves and their situation.
A try-before-you-buy session, if you will, where we will make a quick presentation on:
What it takes to be a beekeeper - basic yard reqs, good (or no) neighbors, money, desire;
What it's like to be a beekeeper - time it takes, knowledge investment needed;
and we will have some equipment on display and beekeepers there to answer the myriad of questions that you may have.
This presentation will be given at four different times and locations in October:
