Northern Michigan is rich with beekeeping knowledge- from amateurs to professionals alike. The passion for raising bees and understanding their importance to our ecosystem- particularly in our diverse agricultural region- is shared with our love of honey. The Benzie Area Beekeepers Guild is a way to support each other and encourage participation to better serve each other and our little sisters, the bees. By staying connected with one another, members have more access to information and tools to have success with their bees.
Upcoming meeting topics include: Spring tasks and hive assessment, including: removal of mouse-guards and clearing bottom boards, box reversal, colony and queen health check, Spring feeding, and general troubleshooting. Grow Benzie will also be offering formal classes, Beekeeping 101 and Advanced Beekeeping, in June andJuly. Click on Classes & Events for details.
