Hi Ray, thank you for the welcome. I just acquired 2 hives from Mace K. who is moving to CO. I am new to beekeeping and excited by the opportunity. These are health hives, boxes are top bar, built by Jason Fink, who also helped me place them on our North Valley property. Unfortunately, I will miss the august meeting but look forward to attending future beek meetings.
Ray, Thanks for the welcome. I currently do not have a hive, but have thought about getting one. I have been interested in the plight of our pollinators and how to best support them in their very important role in the ecosystem. My most current interest is in moving the hive in my wall though! (So I guess now I can say that I have had a hive, even though they choose me!) Thanks for supporting such a great source of bee information.
Raymond! I'm pretty sure we met at a local food fest at the Hubbell House in the south valley this summer. You were very helpful about beekeeping stuff & even invited me to come check out your hives. I'd love to take you up on that offer if it still stands!
