Feb. 25, 2020 - First Meeting of the Year
We know you've been missing the friendly buzz of your bees this winter, as well as the chance to talk with other beekeepers about their experiences.
The first meeting of 2020 of the Toe Cane Beekeepers will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 25, from 6 to 8 p.m. at United Community Bank in Burnsville.
No formal speaker is planned for this month, but we'll announce some really exciting speakers for future gatherings and hear from fellow beekeepers about their overwintering successes (or woes).
Also, a number of our members will be attempting to sell locally bred queens and possibly a few nucleus hives. Michelle Mejia at Moral Bees (www.moralbees.com) will have some of her locally adapted queens available this spring. Check out her new website and come to the meeting to hear more.
As usual, the meeting is free and open to the public. It will begin with a pot-luck dinner, so bring a dish to share.
TCBA is a non-profit organization that promotes the art and science of beekeeping, encourages cooperation among local beekeepers, contributes to the advancement of education about beekeeping and its related activities, and offers related support to our members and neighboring communities.
Monthly meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday February through July. Guest speakers appear at each regular meeting, which begin at 6 p.m. with a Pot Luck Dinner. Most meetings are held at the United Community Bank in Burnsville. All meetings are open to the public. You don't have to be a member to attend.
