Bees & Bee Keeping Discussion Group

All are welcome to the Bees & Beekeeping Discussion Group gathering, almost always on the LAST Wednesday of each month.

UPDATE 3pm 2/24
Apparently the main roads are fine, so we will proceed with the evening's activities!  Please drive safely and perhaps allow a bit more time to get there.

This talk is planned during the first half (7-8 pm-ish) of the February Bee Discussion Group gathering, regularly held the last Wednesday of the month.

Join us for this informal monthly gathering of bee enthusiasts - a chat fest of beekeeping information! 
We meet on the LAST Wednesday of every month - mark your calendars!  See details below.

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.

Beehive Benefits to Human Health including Bee Sting/Bee Venom Therapy

During the first half of the usual bee group discussion we will have a special presentation by Bee Group member Sandy vonAllmen!
In the second half we will also discuss the annual co-op purchase of bee packages and nuc's to restock hives in the Spring.

Presention By: Sandy VonAllmen

Sandy VonAllmen is a retired RN who has kept a few beehives since 1998 in order to make good use of some of the health benefits associated with keeping bees.  As her interest in bee venom therapy grew, she took an online Apitherapy Course with a Romanian doctor that expanded her awareness of its benefits.  Sandy will discuss the many benefits to health of many byproducts of the hive and, of course, the most interesting to her being the Bee Sting (Bee Venom) Therapy that she also has the most experience with.
