Please contact email@example.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.
