The HABA board really appreciates all the feedback concerning future meeting topics. The top request so far was for Apiary Record Keeping, followed in order of most interest by: Swarms, Hive Inspections, Disease Identification, Beekeeper Garage Sale, When to Add Supers, Varroa Assessment/Control, Solar Wax Melting, Hobby or Business?/Tax Info, Raising Queens, Split Methods, and Beekeeping Equipment. There’s a few more days for you to share some input before the board meets–please share your comments here.
Laketown Township will be discussing a beekeeping ordinance. All interested parties are encouraged to attend. The meeting will be on Wednesday, March 5 at 7 pm, Laketown Township Hall (4338 Beeline Road, Holland, Michigan 49423). Here is the proposal. If anyone has any questions, comments, or suggestions, they can contact Loren Vredevoogd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
