November Meeting

Carolina Bee Company, Carrack Live Hive & Encaustic Exhibit

Greetings, November is already upon us, and our last meeting of the year is less than a week away. There is a lot going on (see the bottom of the page for a brief summery).  Thank you to everyone who has helped support us through this year.  I hope to see you all the monthly meeting, Monday, 11/18, at 6:30, Sarah P Duke Gardens.
Our guest is Monica Warner, Carolina Bee Company.  Her visit last spring was one of my favorites, and left me wanting to hear more about genetics, diversity and queens.  So I couldn’t be more excited that she is coming back to talk about just that!
A live observation hive will go on display next Monday, at  the Carrack Art Gallery , for a two week installment.  The gallery is open late on Tuesday 11/19, 7-10pm, and there is an open invitation to the Durham Beekeepers.  It could be a great opportunity to socialize outside the usual structure of monthly meetings, and hopefully will tie the year up nicely.
On a similar note, I will be giving a talk about the observation hive and about Urban Beekeeping on Wednesday, 11/20, 7-10pm.  The talk will likely take place at 8:30pm.  Also, and I’m so happy about this, Honey Girl Meadery will be present with samples of her tasty mead.
