The Toe Cane Beekeepers meeting on Tuesday, May 23, will feature a panel of experienced beekeepers who will briefly discuss their experience with bees this spring and then take questions from attendees.

“This is an excellent opportunity for inexperienced beekeepers, including those who attended our basic beekeeping class, to get first-hand coaching from local experts, including a North Carolina State Beekeepers Association Master Beekeeper,” said Ed Geouge, TCBA president. “These open sessions have been popular with our membership in the past.”

Because of the warm February weather followed by a colder March, this has been an unusual year for keeping bees. Beekeepers of any skill level who are facing challenges or have questions related to their hives are encouraged to attend.

Members who use the TCBA’s honey extraction equipment should also attend as the TCBA will debut its new policies regarding equipment reservations and use.

The beekeepers meeting will be held at the Trinity Episcopal Church, 15 Hemlock Avenue, Spruce Pine, beginning at 6:30 p.m., and is open to the public.
