October BCBC Meeting

Our next Buncombe County Bee meeting
will be Monday evening, October 3 at 7:00 pm
at Groce United Methodist Church in Asheville.

We will preview the upcoming event
What Turns Bees On Conference
sponsored by the Center for Honeybee Research
that is headquartered here in Buncombe County.
World class honeybee scholars and cutting edge research!

We will also engage in a honey tasting
to sample honey from different pollen sources
and to see what it tastes like when someone
adds artificial ingredients to honey for market.

We will also talk about how and when to feed our bees
when their honey stores are not ample for winter.

Come join us!
