Wairarapa beekeepers

Recommended Posts

We're moving to Carterton and taking our girls with us. Eventually I'd like to hook up with other beekeepers in the wairarapa.

 

There are a few old posts on here referring to get togethers - @Fyl are you still here? Google suggests there might be a hobby beeking club organised through Facebook.

 

So would someone please describe what's happening on the hobby beek scene in Wairarapa? Do I need to get back into Facebook?

Did you think about leaving your girls behind.?

If they have just become teenagers that would be perfectly understandable .:D

Hi Rob,

 

I'm a little further south in Featherston. Would definitely like to catch up over a cup of tea or a smoker one day.

 

There is a Wairarapa beeking club on Facebook and although I haven't had a chance to go along yet, they do seem very active.

That sounds good. I thought you were in the Manawatu. Guess we're all on the move.

Two girls, of the human variety, ages 10 and 11. They've not quite reached the tweens yet but getting close.

You have about 2 years max for your brainwashing to be successful so crack on before it's too late and they're drinking RTD's on the way to school

Hi Rob,

 

I'm in Carterton too and am a member of the Wairarapa Hobby Beekeepers Club. We're a fairly active group with a wide range of experience and abilities. We meet on the second Sunday of each month - usually hosted at a members house. We have recently got the go ahead from Masterton District Council to use some land for a club apiary and now have a very basic website set up (only in the last couple of weeks - it's got some growing to do :) ) So all in all the club is moving ahead in a really good direction - it's a great place to meet people who are keen beekeepers!

 

If you're interested in coming along to a meeting just send us a message on Facebook (Wairarapa Hobby Beekeepers Club) or contact us through the website www.wairarapabeekeepers.club 

 

And welcome to Carterton! :)
