One of the greatest challenges to beekeeping in Massachusetts is getting colonies through the winter. Last year Eastern MA beekeepers lost over 50% of their colonies over the winter months; the bees (and beekeepers) need all the help they can get. Come learn from a panel of experienced local beekeepers the techniques they have used and found to be successful for overwintering. The panel will include Anita Deeley of Beverly Bees (and one of the state’s Apiary Inspectors) and Mel Gadd of Clumsy Dog Apiary. These beekeepers have experience tending and overwintering Langstroth, Warre and Top Bar Hives. This session will be indoors and include guidance on how to prepare your hive for winter, with time for Q & A after the panel discussion.
The building we will be meeting in is the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center (Granoff for short); its address is 20 Talbot Ave, Medford, MA and we will be in Room 155. There is a visitor parking lot on the College Ave side of the building. The closest T stop is Davis (off the red line) and the 94 and 96 buses both stop across the street from the building (College Ave @ Dearborn).
