The Benzie Area Beekeepers Guild is a non-profit organization open to the public which encourages participation by local beekeepers and potential beekeepers with an interest in natural beekeeping. Our goal is to raise bees that are prolific while hygienic, able to over-winter in Northern Michigan and resist Varroa mites. We aim to support each other through discussion, hands-on demonstrations and communal co-operation.
This meeting’s topic will be “Spring in the Hive” with Peggy Case leading the conversation regarding tips for season transitions. We’ll also discuss current tool, equipment and bee needs that folks have and see what Grow Benzie has been donated, and what boxes & frames the guild built last fall. This is a potluck meeting, attendees are encouraged (not required) to bring a dish to pass.
Beekeepers of all experience levels are welcomed and encouraged to attend this informal gathering of bee enthusiasts.
