Beekeeping in Vermont

By now you've likely heard how vandals destroyed beehives and greenhouses at the Burlington Intervale. Bill Mares sent the following note which we'd like to pass on to you.

Dear VBA members,   We are so gratified by the offers of support after our hives were vandalized this week.  We trust that the culprits will be caught and punished appropriately.

If you still wish to help, may we suggest that your contributions would go toward restoring a couple of those hives to be used for VBA classes there at the Intervale, where they have been held for 20 years.  This will also serve as encouragement for establishing a Chittenden County Bee Club right there in the Intervale.  (The Intervale Center has offered to let us use one of their meeting rooms for VBA gatherings.)

The BTV Honey team,  Ron Hernandez, Bill Mares, Deborah Rubin
