Our first Michigan Beekepers Association meeting

Julian and I began dreaming of bees almost 5 years ago, when we lived in Delta Township, in the city of Lansing. We read Beekeeping for Dummies, and we knew what we wanted and how we would do it. Then I called the township to make sure it was allowed and our hopes were dashed. No bees in delta township.

However, when we knew we were moving back to the country this year, and we would have animals again, one of the animals on our list was bees, of course!

For almost a year now Julian and I have been trying to make a meeting of the Michigan Beekeepers. Last Monday we finally made it. I was interested, Julian was mostly bored but loved the info about making beeswax candles, and we learned that they'll be placing a bulk order for nucs soon! We're so excited! It looks like it's finally going to happen. Wish us luck!
