OCBA’s Introduction to Beekeeping Class will be held November 8th from 0900 until noon at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Hillsborough. Registration will begin at 0830 that morning. Spread the word!
Our November meeting should be fun! Three folks who use honey to make delicious beverages will join us to share some great information. Mark Powers will give us the scoop on honey ale, Diane Currier will share her mead making skills and Rim Vilgalys will introduce us to a honey liquor he brews. Of, course, Vinny’s before the meeting at 5 for a bite to eat. The meeting will start at 7 PM as usual.
One of our state bee inspectors, Adolphus Leonard, will be talking with us about preparing our hives for winter. The meeting will be at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Hillsborough ( uuchnc.org ) at 7 PM. We will meet at 5 PM for fun and food before the meeting at Vinny’s ( vinnyshillsborough.com ). Hope you can join us!
