Every week our student’s inspect their hives. They get to see the hives develop and get to compare them to each other. Every hive is different, some grow faster, gather more nectar,etc. Some grow rapidly, some barely grow at all. Our students get to see it all, hives that go queenless, how to combine hives, how to make splits and all the other normal tasks of beekeeping.
Ginger is teaching our students how to install a nuc (nucleus colony) into an 8 frame hive.
A big thank you to everyone who supported us during the NVEnergy Power of Good Giveaway. Although we made it to the finals, we didn’t place in the top 3 after the final count. Nevertheless – Thank you! Thank you to everyone who voted for us; everyone who coerced, begged, pleaded and asked their friends and family to participate in the giveaway. Excellent programs that help our active and veteran military community did win – and that’s what it’s all about, serving those that selflessly served our nation. We received tremendous exposure in the community and have received emails from all over the U.S. about our program. We couldn’t bee happier! Thank you again, and stay tuned – bee season is almost here!
