As a follow-up to our February short course, more information for beekeepers who are just starting out will be presented at the next meeting of the Blount County Beekeepers Association on Monday, March 12.

The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. in the Blount County Library. The public, as always, is invited.

Presentations and discussions will be led by BCBA members Ricky Bailey and Logan VanLeigh. We’ll be talking about what to do with a new hive, swarm prevention and pollination, among other things. We’ll also be announcing our scholarship winners.

And don’t forget about our woodenware workshop on Saturday, March 24. More details about that are on page 2.
