The Madison County Beekeepers Association is sponsoring a presentation by Mel Disselkoen on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at 9:00 am at the Madison County Extension Office, 230 Duncannon Lane, Richmond KY 40475.
Mel Disselkoen will be speaking regarding his 40+ year experience with beekeeping with his On The Spot system of queen rearing and mite control.
Hopefully, weather permitting, there will be an opportunity for a hands-on experience with several hives Saturday afternoon (arrangements are being made) with Mel regarding his OTS system. (If so, we will have a break for folks to go get lunch on their own.)
We are asking for a $5-$10 donation at the door to help with expenses, but won’t turn anyone away. We want to invite everyone to come and hear this important talk.
See the attached PDF for more information.

The Bluegrass Beekeepers will have a display table set up at the Headley-Whitney Museum Garden Affair this Saturday, May 12 to educate folks about the importance of bees as pollinators. We would like to have some more members be available during the 10am to 5pm event to share about beekeeping. It allows you free admittance to the event. Be sure to check out their website and let us know if you are available. https://www.headley-whitney.org/
