    Beekeepers HB Inc will be holding a tree planting morning at their community apiary on Prebensen Drive, Napier, opposite Mitre 10 / Farmlands. Please contact beekeepershbinc@gmail.com to establish what to bring. We need to ensure PPE is worn wear necessary and there will be some broom clearing and then we will be planting a number of native trees for bees that we hope will become a focus for the public. The community apiary has been established to support club members who live in an urban setting to place their hives in a socially acceptable setting and learn along with like minded club members. The hive sites cost $5 per year per member and club membership is $25 per year or $35 per year for a family membership.

    BHBI Club regular monthly meeting. Top of the agenda is discussion around members concerns of the CE Karin Kos comments in the September NZ Beekeeper about her, Dennis Crowley, a group of beekeepers and the HBRC establishing a small pilot project on boundary stacking that will inform where APINZ go with strengthening their code of conduct. Details of the project have been requested from the CE of APINZ but it is unlikely we will have a response by this evening. We will return to our proposed agenda once we have satisfied that discussion.

    BHBI will be conducting a weekend workshop for members and other interested beekeepers at the Guthrie Smith Arboretum, Tutira, north of Napier. The workshop starts on the Friday evening of 19 July and runs through to lunchtime on the Sunday 21 July. The first session on Saturday morning will be conducted by Lynda Newstrom-Lloyd (Trees for Bees) and Chris Ryan who is the resident Arborist. The Arboretum has an Education Centre and bunk style accommodation for up to 50 and a well appointed Kitchen. Chris and his team have recently planted a hillside dedicated to bees and although nothing is likely to be flowering we will use the opportunity to share in Lynda and Chris's knowledge on why they have planted what they have and what to expect as both the trees and plants grow. The Arboretum can be viewed here http://www.guthriesmith.org.nz/ More to follow

    Do you have honey but no buyer in sight, or prices too low to cover costs? Let’s get together and talk about it. Bruce Clow, Managing Director of Ceracell Beekeeping Supplies (NZ) Ltd is travelling through-out the country in April hosting meetings with beekeepers who might be interested in starting a honey producers’ co-op, or looking at other ways to improve the financial returns for commercial beekeepers. Ceracell has always said that we are here “to help beekeepers”, and quite a number of our commercial beekeepers have expressed serious concerns about their ability to sell honey at a price that makes their business viable. Well Bruce says, “we are here to help”. Let’s see what we can do together. If things look dark and desperate, you are not alone. Come to one of the meetings and we’ll see what we might be able to do together. Also, let your commercial beekeeping friends know about the meetings, just in case they haven’t seen this notice. Topics that we might cover: Is there really a problem? What is a Co-op? What might be involved in setting up a Co-op? Are there other things a beekeeper might do to improve his/her bottom-line? If I want “out” how can it be done and recover value from my business? Is there “hope”? You are not alone! If you think you might like to come to one of the meetings, please email bruce@ceracell.co.nz and leave your contact details. That way Bruce can contact you in case anything untoward happens (such as a car breakdown or illness) which could result in a meeting being cancelled. Meeting locations (all times are 10 am to 12 noon):

    Spring has sprung, and my phone is ringing daily with enquiries from people wanting to learn about beekeeping, so it must be time to run our annual beginners course again. Run over six weeks commencing 26 September, Tuesday evenings, 7-9pm, and we'll also fit in at least one apiary visit on a weekend as weather allows. We'll cover everything you need to know to keep a beehive happy and healthy throughout the year, including hive style options, health and disease management, legalities, honey production and much more. Whether you've already got a hive and just want to beef up or are just thinking about taking the plunge, come along and have some fun. All hive types and methodologies/philosophies covered.... Theoretical, legal and practical. Contact me (Deanna) to register - phone home evenings (06) 876 8852. Registration required. Cost: $50 per person/family.
