Bees & Bee Keeping Discussion Group

Special presentations on installing package bees and extracting honey! All are welcome to the Bees & Beekeeping Discussion Group gathering, almost always on the LAST Wednesday of each month.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Join us for this informal monthly gathering of bee enthusiasts - a chat fest of beekeeping information!  All are welcome!  No experience necessary, though if you're really new to it, reading up some before you come is a good idea so you can have questions in mind to share.

This month we are anticipating delivery of our "package bees" to replace hives that did not survive the Winter, so likely much talk will surround that topic. 

We will also have a couple of short special presentations by Don Matheson:

"Basic Honey Extracting for the Hobbiest" - a brief "dry" demonstration of small scale equipment
"How to Install Your Package Bees" - with an empty package and hive body for review

"Bee" on the lookout for more in our series of beginner to advanced workshops.
"Bee" in touch -- join us!  Email us at to receive notice of workshops and events.  Also, check out  "The BeeHive," our Resource Page!

The Discussion Group is on a pass-the-hat, free-will donation basis to support the club and the Local Living Venture workshop programming.  

Betty Evans Community Room in the new wing (left hand door) of the E.J. Noble Medical Bldg., 80 E. Main Street, Canton, NY. (next to the Best Western, across from the Price Chopper on Rt. 11, Canton.)  Usually we post an orange 'Local Living Workshop Site' lawn site near the door.

Novice to advanced levels are welcome to attend and share their questions, successes and challenges in a casual group setting. 7 PM, 1 to 2 hours.
