COBKA Beginners Corner

Just a reminder to all of the newer beekeepers, as well as oldsters, that before each COBKA meeting we will be hold a "Beginners Corner" starting at 5:30.  Club mentors monitor the discussions and we split into groups if the numbers allow. 

This 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.

Hope to See you There!
