Equipment Assembly Workshop

An equipment assembling workshop will be offered on March 28th. Tips and tricks to help you assemble your woodenware will leave you with a complete setup, ready for painting and bees! There will be a $20 fee to cover materials. This workshop will offer use of air staplers, nails, glue, Bt ( wax moth prevention), carpenter's squares, and frame assembly jigs.  Please bring a hammer, gloves and safety glasses if you have them.  (We will have some safety glasses to share).

Please email us at for equipment price sheet if interested. Orders must be placed by February 16th and we need at least 5 participants to hold this workshop.



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 starts with a short seasonal appropriate presentation followed by general open discussion. 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.

• What: Bee Group

• Where: Olive Free Library, West Shokan

• When: 3rd Monday of the Month - 6:30PM

Hope to see you at our next meeting,
Rob Overton
Lindsay Brower
