This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

MN Hobby Beekeepers Annual Banquet and Auction

 Annual Banquet & Auction

February 2, 4:30 pm - 10:00 pm CST 


$25 per person
Held at: Keller Golf Course, 2166 Maplewood Drive, Maplewood, MN 55109
The auction is a lot of fun. I encourage everyone to attend. This is a fundraiser so bring your checkbook. If you have an item to donate for the auction please bring it. Besides bee equipment, beekeepers have donated Twins and other sports tickets, air plane rides, personal chef dinners, weekend resort stay, be creative.  All great items, that really helped out the Basil Furgala Fund from the Univ of MN.
