The VBA Meetings Calendar has been updated to reflect the just-announced schedule of beekeeping workshops for the 2013 season. Workshops are held on Saturdays -weather permitting - and are a great way for beginners to learn how to become a beekeeper and for experienced "beeks" to brush up on their skills. (Rain days are the following day.)
Workshops are free, open to the public and involve opening colonies so bring your veil and protective clothing! All workshops run from 11am to 1pm. For more information contact Scott Wilson.

Do you have a package of bees arriving April 26, which you'd like installed for free? If so, please contact Bill Mares. We want to use it for the package bee workshop at Burlington's Intervale on April 27th at 11 a.m. Thank you!
