SIBA General Meeting
November 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
By way of a unanimous vote at the September meeting, there are enough newer beekeepers that wanted to cover the topic of candy boards for the November meeting.
Jason Morgan will do a hands-on demonstration and make a candy board before your very eyes. Candy boards offer some peace of mind over the winter... especially if you think your hive is really low on honey stores. The benefits of a candy board made correctly adds many benefits to help the bee hive over the winter. The candy board is simply a hardened sugar mixture that lives in a 2-3 inch frame body and has hardware cloth on the bottom to hold the "candy" up. Find out more about candy boards here and watch the video we made previously. We've updated some of our beliefs about candy boards since the video was made... so, join us in November to hear the latest, and ask your questions!
The candy board we make will be raffled off at the end of the meeting. Also, Garry's first Winter workshop will be held the Sat. after the November meeting because December will just be too busy! If you are inspired to make candy boards from the November meeting, then this workshop may be the one to come to and make a few up!
