Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
Our annual Bee School is online, February 20. It’s free, although we’d appreciate any donations to offset the costs of our awesome presenters. Register here.
Speaking of donations, the club gifted one-pound jars of honey to frontline healthcare workers. Healthcare administrators, with whom we coordinated safe delivery and distribution, assured us that community support like this saves lives. Simple gestures–like a jar of honey they tell us–“fuels our workers to continue to find even more strength in dealing with this crisis.” Please help us reward these important workers with a donation of any size. Use the DONATE button on the homepage, or contact us for an address to send a check or with any questions. Thank you.
Our next monthly club meeting is Wednesday, January 13, at 7:30. Online access details will be sent via our newsletter, so bee sure you’re signed up — see the homepage of this website. We’ll be covering:
- Winter Management — what, if anything, should you bee doing this time of year and
- So You’re Thinking About Keeping Bees? A review of the cost, commitment and process to do so.
Also, please check out our new page on vendors, under the ‘Resources’ tab — for bees and bee supplies.
We continue to try and answer questions as received, but there’s another great resource–the experts at Michigan State University! You can ask questions via this easy-to-use forum; we’ve found them very responsive and helpful.
They also have many excellent webinars for a variety of issues. Please check them out.
If you’d like to help support our work, we’d greatly appreciate your tax-deductible contribution. THANK YOU.
