2020 Short Course and first monthly meeting

Short Course
It was a great time at the annual short course. Thanks to organizers, guest speakers and attendees for making it a success. Don’t forget our next scheduled meeting will be Tuesday the 28th at the Co-op in Athens at 7:00.

First 2020 Meeting
Thank you to everyone that came out and supported our first meeting of the year! It is hard to believe that it has been 3 months since we have had an official meeting. We had lots of business to take care of for most of the meeting and lots of new beekeepers in attendance.
Of course, we had the challenges of technical support! I loved it! It should show us that beekeeping works the same way. What does that mean? Well, it means that every time you think you have it figured and planned out, that those lovely ladies in the bee world have a different plan. Never stop learning from them.
John Hartman talked with us about what we need to be looking for and what preparations we need to be doing for the next couple of months. We look forward to his words of wisdom at the next meeting.
We had a panel of beekeepers at the end answering questions from the attendees. We loved that each beekeeper had an answer and shared from their lessons learned. The most discussed question was about feeding your bees. So, an action item for our February 25th meeting, is to bring an example of what and how you feed your bees.
