Les Crowder is coming to Austin Texas to lead a workshop at the end of May and will stay through June 1 in order to join the Travis County Beekeepers to discuss the next generation of beekeepers getting started today and how to care for your bees without putting harsh chemicals into the environment. 7:00-9:00 pm at the Zilker Botanical Gardens.
For more information on his workshop May 30-31, please go to www.BeeFriendlyAustin.com
We had over 30 attendees at the July meeting! Chris Doggett gave an excellent presentation on how to get started in beekeeping as a hobby. At the August meeting we will learn about equipment needs for getting started and discuss the various options available when you buy those first bees. Let us take the mystery out of shopping those bee catalogs! Don’t buy extra equipment you really don’t need. The next meeting is August 26th at 7pm, same place!
