Beekeepers in Santa Cruz area and Santa Clara Valley area
« on: June 08, 2007, 05:53:58 PM »
I'd like to meet other beekeepers in the Santa Cruz/San Jose area to network with.  I'm new to bee keeping and would like to learn as much as possible.  I'd be glad to meet for coffee and talk or to help you with your hive-work.  I'm a member of the Santa Clara Valley Bee Guild and I'm looking to connect with other beekeepers. Thanks! Laurie

So Beefriend..haveyoumet any other Santa Cruzans who keep bees?  I would like to get together a group as well...I do know a fellow dahlia grower in Soqule, but I don't think she needs help in learning...Maybe we could start a little association here?

Hi Day Valley Dahlia!

The only current bee keeper I've met is the guy at Camp Joy in Boulder Creek.  I'm with you... I'd like to start a Santa Cruz group as well.  It doesn't have to be super fancy, I just would love the networking.  So yes!  Let's get a group going!  I'll try emailing you... I'm not very good at figuring out this list thingie!
