Our January meeting will be held on Tuesday, the 17th, from 7 to 9 PM, in the Community Center of St. Luke's Methodist Church (300 Ella Taylor Road, Yorktown, VA).
Colonial Beekeepers will conduct a Woodenware Workshop on a Saturday, January 21st. This workshop will consist of a class for new beekeepers providing instruction on how best to put the various components together as well as a workshop for veteran beekeepers wishing to put together woodenware. A day and place with tools and help available to build boxes, tops, frames and anything else needed!
Colonial Beekeepers will be hosting three "Getting Started in Beekeeping" presentations in January 2017. This will be a great opportunity for those of you considering beekeeping to come out and see what it is all about! We will have a meet and greet informational meeting where folks can come out and just consider whether beekeeping makes any sense for themselves and their situation.
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.
