Speaker and topics set for 1st meeting – March 25th!

Howdy,

Our main topic of the evening is to discuss what it takes to get an AG exemption in Travis and surrounding counties of Texas using beekeeping for 5-20 acre land parcels.  This discussion will be lead by Chuck Reburn and Tanya Phillips.

It is also our pleasure to host Andrew from Bee Weaver.  He works at Bee Weaver in Navasota and teaches classes in Beekeeping in the Hill Country and Austin areas.  He will be joining us to discuss the AG Exemption issues he has seen so far in some of the surrounding counties as he has been working directly with folks getting started with their exemptions.

Andrew will also do a quick Q & A with us on what it’s like to work as a Bee Breeder in Texas.

We also have a smidgeon of business to handle, too, in order to move forwards as a new countywide beekeeping association.  Yes we are seeking officers for the board and or other volunteers to help with the organizational processes of a new organization.  So if that’s your ball of wax, please feel free to let us know, and volunteer! 😉

Also, we want this to be YOUR group, too, so bring us your ideas for what you want to see in YOUR county beekeepers association!

Thanks and we’ll see you Tuesday night at the Ruiz Library.

Tanya
