A Reminder...

Rob Overton is conducting a FREE beginners workshop, Intro to Beekeeping, January 15, 2022, Olive Free Library – West Shokan, 10AM – 4PM. If you are new to beekeeping, thinking about starting, this is a very nice intro to the subject. And even with a couple years experience, there is the opportunity to sit in with and ask questions of a beekeeper who has been at it all his life. The more people the better the workshop will Bee. Let your friends know, too, and pass this info on to those who are thinking about becoming a beekeeper. Don't miss out on this opportunity. Opportunity Knocks!!

A great opportunity for anyone to come and ask questions, be it you've no bees yet or have bees for a couple years.

Bee Group Meeting

What: Bee Group
Where: Olive Free Library, West Shokan - check details above for location
When: On Hold For Now

Hudson Valley Hives is a beekeeping group that meets at the Olive Free Library on a monthly basis and discuss all things beekeeping. The meeting is driven by members questions and sharing experiences with the goal of spreading timely knowledge among fellow beekeepers. It is very informal and we welcome anyone interested to participate. If you are just thinking about getting started in beekeeping, a new beekeeper, or a seasoned beekeeper, you will benefit from the group discussions. There is no membership fee. The Olive Free Library graciously provides a meeting place for our group and we encourage you to make a donation to the library if you find the BeeGroup helpful.
