COBKA Beginners Corner

Before each COBKA meeting we hold a "Beginners Corner" starting at 5:30. Club mentors monitor the discussions and we split into groups if the numbers allow. 

Are you thinking about getting bees or have less than a year of beekeeping experience? Our beginner's corner is a time in a small informal group situation for you to ask any questions, share what is going on in your hives, or to prepare for the next season ahead.  Please feel free to join us in a relaxed and open setting.

Not a true beginner but want to come and visit about bees before the general meeting begins? Please join us in the main meeting room at 5:30!

Hope to See you There!

    Initiative Brewing has let me (Adrienne) know that they are once again allowed to host us for Bees and Brews. 

    Location: Initiative Brewing - 424 NW 5th St., Redmond, OR 97756

    We will be seated (appropriately distanced) in the space behind the bar. 

    Bees and Brews is a super low key, casual, no agenda, social gathering. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and to better build our beekeeping community. 

    Grab some grub and a brew! Let’s talk about bees, or not!
