Beekeeping in Vermont...

The VBA's first workshop has been moved up a week - from April 14 to April 7 due to the early spring weather and the need to manipulate hives. Check the entire schedule here.

VBA Librarian Curtis Middleton has updated the VBA Resource Library listings (member login required to access).

Curtis will be at the northern yard workshop on April 7th. VBA members who wish to check out an item from the library may contact the librarian prior to the workshop and have it delivered to them at the workshop. This will also be an opportunity to return items to the library. Please note that library items checked out at the VBA winter meeting are now overdue for return.

And check out this video from VBA member Ted Albers who came across these bees raiding a birdhouse in Shelburne. (Ted wants to know why they might be doing this!)
