The presentation is titled BK-101, by club president Chuck Bauer. This presentation is Primarily designed for those that don't have bees yet, but everyone, experienced or not, are welcome to attend. This is a free no charge meeting. (The GR Bee Club operates on donations). Its kind of a primer for the upcoming bee schools at the Holland Bee Club & The Kalamazoo Bee Club.
We HIGHLY encourage NEW beekeepers to attend a bee school.
The meeting will introduce you to some of the beekeeping lingo and equipment so you won't be overwhelmed at the bee schools. There will also be a Q&A session afterwards. The meeting will end at 8:00 PM.
The bee schools at Holland and Kalamazoo will have equipment vendors that will be happy to assist you with equipment questions and of course they will have equipment for sale. There will also be bee vendors to order bees from. (The bees will be available for pickup in May.)
Always check our Facebook site before the meeting in case of weather cancellations.
