Starting with opening the hives (weather permitting) followed by a talk about what to do this month in your hive and an opportunity for our new beekeepers to learn some skills and connect with our most valuable resource – our experienced beekeepers.
There will be a BBQ and we would love to have you bring along a little something to eat with tea and coffee.
The library will be out for members to use and there will be a nuc raffle so bring along a $2.00 coin to be in to win. (the plan is to draw this next Field Day – giving you time to set yourself up to receive your new nuc).
Just a quick reminder to new beekeepers or those interested in bees and coming along for the first time – bring your bee suit but not your gloves. We have some bee suits and hats but it’s on a first in first served basis. Make sure you are covered from head to toe with thick socks and strong shoes or boots, bees are attracted to both dark colours and scent like deodorant and perfumes. Last but not least, If you have allergies to bees please carry medication or your epipy pen at all times and let a committee member know.
Looking forward to our first outdoor get together, see you Saturday.
