Next Meeting : Sunday, January 20, 2PM at Cornell Cooperative Extension, 615 Willow Street, Ithaca. On the agenda:
– Food sampling – Bring something honey related! We’ll have a brief moment for people to introduce honey or food they brought.
While we eat, we will…
– discuss equipment needs
– discuss the bee order: how many people want to order bees, whether we prefer packages or nucs or whatever’s easiest, whether any of the members wants to take on the order, whether anyone has a preferred / recommended provider, etc.
And of course, there will be time to answer any bee questions.
