New in Atlanta
« on: April 24, 2008, 06:20:18 PM »
Hey folks...I've actually been here for a couple months before noticing the new members board. I'm 24 (still some young beekeepers these days) and myself and a friend of mine have 4 hives between us that just made it through their first winter. This place is a great resource!

We have several fantastic members in Atlanta. There is also a great metro Atlanta beekeepers assoc. join them. Go to Lula, GA and meet fatbeeman and take his course on beekeeping. pdmattox and I travel way to much to that area.

Welcome, Craig. 

I hope you'll join Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Association  We meet the second Wednesday of the month at 7 PM at the Botanical Garden. 

I'm a rather active member there, but I'm always late to the meeting because I run a therapy group at my office until 7 PM, but the office is just around the corner so I get there about 7:15 or so.  If you come, be sure to say HI.

Craig, I see that you have posted 7.  I am not sure if I have welcomed you to the forum or not, but if I haven't, welcome.  We love to have new members.  So nice that you have told us a little bit about yourself and that you have 4 colonies with your friend, yeah!!  This is THE best place to ask your questions, tell us of your experiences and spend great and quality time.  We are a friendly group, you will have noticed that and you will make some new friends.  Welcome and have that beautiful and wonderful day, Cindi

A couple of months?  I've been on this forum for 2 years and have yet to introduce myself on this section.  I do believe by now everybody knows who I am and whether or not I know what I'm talking about.  Welcome aboard.

Hi Craig:
What part of Atlanta?
We're pretty new to Atlanta as well.  This is my 2nd year and now have 4 hives.  The Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Association is great (and a great resource for newbees too).  Hope to see you there!
I won't let grass grow under my feet, there will be plenty of time to push up daisies.
