Monthly General Meeting – October
October 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Chris Whipple from Diversified Services will be discussing a new Apiculture insurance program. This product was just released in our area. Chris will cover all of the aspects of this new federally subsidized program. Many beekeepers have implemented various risk management techniques to help alleviate some of the effects of drought; however, the beekeeping industry historically has not been able to participate in subsidized federal crop insurance programs. While the program is new, you can take advantage of the available government subsidies and implement a solid risk management tool to help offset some of the effects of drought.
Meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:30pm at Garry's Workshop in Moore's Hill. Open to the public. There are no dues. If you are even thinking about getting honey bees, come to a meeting and learn a little first!
