Beekeeping in Vermont...
A VBA Volunteer is still needed for the following shift at Tunbridge Fair!
Saturday - Sept 15th - 1pm to 5pm
"They had a tent and table, chairs, all ready for me. I brought some props, super with new and used frames, smoker, VBA brochures, some honey, for tasting and a little to sell. I also borrowed an observation hive from Bob Davin in Hubbardton. That was a big hit for sure. Not only the kids but the adults were thrilled to see a Queen etc.
The Vermont Beekeeper’s Association created the Vermont Beekeeper of the Year Award to recognize and celebrate the contributions of Vermont beekeepers that support beekeeping in Vermont and have provided outstanding service to the VBA. The intent is to recognize lifetime achievement rather than contributions in a single year.
A new website category can be found under the Members Only area. The Policy menu choice includes VBA organizational policy notices and statements about issues affecting beekeeping in Vermont.
The first (new) notice posted is an explanation of guidelines, criteria and priorities for donations made by the Vermont Beekeepers Association.
