Hello, I am a very dedicated gardner, and the last 2 years have experienced low pollination levals, and having always had an interest in beekeeping, want to get into it.

welcome.  You'll find lots of good info here.

Lakeman, welcome to our forum, so nice that you found us.  This will be a great place where you can ask alot of questions, get great answers, and always remember, all questions are important.  Have a great, most wonderful day, great health.  Cindi

Hello Lakeman,

I'm pretty much of a newbee myself, but I live just across the state line in Ga.  Good luck to you.

Fortunately, I happened to find out about a beekeepinng course, being offered in a neighboring city (Greenwood SC), by the Lakelands Beekeepers Association, and the McCormick County (Clemson) Extension Service, and although they had already had their fist class, allowed me to make a late entry, and the registration included the first years membership in the Lakelands Beekeepers Association.
