Building Community One Hive At A Time
Beekeeping isn't easy. When we understand bee biology, we can make more informed choices re: hive management. Come learn from your community and from our guest lecture series.
A big part of community is helping each other. Bee a Mentor. Find a Mentor.
Strength in numbers enables us to handle bigger beekeeping issues in our region. We primarily support a treatment free approach although all management styles are welcome aboard.

*Some good ol’ beeks like Adrian Ogden,Tom Clark, Mark Griffin, George Attobel, Nancy Lewis Heliotes, Greg Clark, Joe Papendic and Mike O’dell, will all be there to answer your questions along the way.
* As this meeting is in the center of an active working apiary, there will be bees, lots of bees. And ticks too! You may want to bring your bee costume or at the least a veil and tuck your pants into your socks. It is your responsibility to protect yourself.
*It’s about a 150 yard walk to the apiary, so keep in mind you’ll want to be able to carry it in and pack it out.
*1125 Golden Gate Dr.
