Spend Valentine’s Day with your fellow beekeepers this year, and learn about the Virginia Bee Hive Grant program, approved by last year’s General Assembly.
We meet as usual at 7 p.m. at the Christiansburg Health and Human Services Building. Bring your sweetheart and some sweet treats to share!
State Apiarist Keith Tignor will be our guest speaker. He will explain the grant program and the status of legislative funding for it. He will also address the program’s guidelines and the application process, which were established by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Plant Industry Services Division.
And don’t forget; if you haven’t renewed your membership yet, do it now online or with cash or check at the meeting. The membership rolls will be updated on Feb. 15.
