Glenda has asked me to do a bee school for all you folks up there. I will be happy to, but can one of you call Glenda and have her check her e-mail and reply to me so we can get moving on this. I want to have the class before Bee Day at the end of April.
I'm resending my message b/c I wasn't registered when I sent the first one and thought you probably did not receive it.
Hi, My name is Jeanne White - I'm an acupuncturist in Sisters, OR and I'm interested in your Bee School. Could you please email or call me with info. Also, I'd love to find a local beekeeper in the area that I can purchase honey, pollen and propolis from. Do you have any contacts for me? ThanKs, Jeanne White, L.Ac 541-549-6910 firstname.lastname@example.org
We are still hammering out the details, but it will be held on Saturday, April 15 from 9am-3pm, or until all questions are answered. I am trying to close a deal with COCC for a room. It's a good deal for them because this is considered a workforce development class so it has special benefits for hosting a class such as this. Please do not call COCC for information. We will post information here as this class comes together.
I will be demonstrating equipment, sharing different methods and philosophies of beekeeping and I have over 400 slides in my slide show that covers bee behavior, beekeeping history, anatomy and biology, honey, wax, pests and disease and treatment.
We may be going to a location after the class is over to pop a hive open. This detail has not been worked out yet. I will bring some extra protective gear with me for those without, but that is limited.
