Presidents Message

Hello Everyone,

Happy almost Valentine’s Day! We have had few warm days recently and I hope your bees have been out with their cleansing flights! I know I need to get in my own gear and start prepping frames for the season. Some quick notes below:

  • We have just wrapped up the beginning beekeeping class with 32 participants. This was our first in-person class since 2020 which also included a Zoom option. It was a great class, super exciting to be in person, and we are looking forward to supporting our graduates during their first year of beekeeping.
  • We were hoping to participate in the Growing Project’s Cupcake Challenge on Valentine’s Day but this event has been canceled.
  • It’s also American Heart Month and thought you might enjoy this scientific review of 25 articles regarding the potential cardioprotective of honey. Quite interesting.

Enjoy the update, and as always, more to come!
We look forward to seeing you this Thursday at our meeting!
Bee Well!

Thank you again for your membership and support.
