Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
With the active season of bee management winding down, our programming is turning to other facets of bees. November features wax rendering, with presenter Chris Beck. Chris was a popular speaker at our last bee school, and will demo how to turn those containers of cappings into beautiful wax. (Perhaps just in time for the holiday season / gift giving?)
And speaking of gifts, November is our final meeting of 2019. Thus, this will be your last chance to buy bee-themed apparel, books, totes, aprons, etc. We just restocked our popular stainless steel straws in a cute bee sleeve. You can both help save the planet by not using a disposable straw, and help support the bee club with your purchase.
October’s meeting, featuring Ross Conrad presenting on Apitherapy – Healing and Health With Products From the Hive, provided a fascinating look at a somewhat secondary dimension of beekeeping. His knowledge and affable manner made for a relaxed, informative night of information. He provided several handouts. Find them on our site under the Resources tab, and then the ‘Recommended Resources’ list on the far right.
November’s Apiary Day is Saturday, November 9 — see the events tab for more information, or check out Events on our Facebook page.
The Kalamazoo Bee Club provides beekeeping education, support, and bee-related services to the greater Kalamazoo area. We’re an open club—anyone can be a member; no membership fee or dues are collected. We provide education through monthly programs, hands-on days in season at the club apiaries, and our annual Bee School.
A big thank you to the following organizations, businesses, and individuals for their generous financial support of this year’s Kalamazoo Bee School:
