Join us this Saturday for a class to go over the mite sampling procedures that were presented at our June meeting. The class will be held at the St. George Brewing Co. 204 Challenger Way in Hampton. The class will start at 9 am and should end by eleven.
With the Honey Harvest Season upon us, Bart Barton created a presentation to clarify the Virginia Honey Labeling and Bottling requirements.
We are a group of beekeepers from the Peninsula and Middle Peninsula areas of Virginia. Members range from as far south as Hampton, to as far north as Middlesex, to as far east as Mathews and all points between. Our purposes are many:
*Enjoying the wonders of nature
*Fostering the keeping, efficient management, and preservation of honey bees
*Providing pollination for local agriculture
*Informing members and our communities of the ecological and economic benefits of honey bees
*Educating members in the science and techniques of apiculture (Being "beekeepers" and not "bee-havers")
Regular meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month, from 7 PM to 9 PM, in the Fellowship Hall of St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Yorktown, VA.
