Our next meeting will include a DVD plus honey tasting. Please feel free to bring some of your honey for the tasting – we’ll provide the tasting spoons!
We will be viewing the DVD from the NCSBA Library entitled “Organic Beekeeping 101” by Randy Sue Collins. The DVD covers not just organic beekeeping, but topics that provide a good overview for any beekeeper. If you are already an experienced beekeeper, this DVD is a great way to educate your family and friends who want to know more about beekeeping.
This educational DVD focuses on organic beekeeping, the way nature meant for bees to be raised. The purpose of the DVD is to educate the novice beekeeper. Professionally filmed footage in a step-by-step format enables the new beekeeper to easily understand and implement the organic principles as they establish their own hives.
Segments include: Tour of the hive; Your beekeeper suit; Your beekeeper equipment and tools; Constructing your hive components, stand, frames, and supers; Assembling your hive components; Capturing your swarm; Populating your hive; Inspecting your hive; Populating your second hive; Managing space in your hive; Extracting your honey.
