I went to my first beekeepers get together yesterday and it was a real good one. I met ALOT of good people and few folks from my little town even!
I went to 6-7 different 45 minute classes. And learned a little about making comb rounds for sale, splitting hives, adding a new queen, different types of bee friendly plants, swarm removal(the prices some charge is outlandish!),wax refinement and its uses, pollen collecting, and drinking mead! oops I mean uhhmm making Mead! :-D(psst tasted great!).
It was a great time and I met some very fun folks w/ the same hobby as mine.
If anyone hasn't made it to one they are a good informative time and worth the effort, time and money to go.
