May BCBC meeting

Join us for our May BCBC meeting.  We will have a two part program.

Phyllis Stiles will share highlights of Bee City USA's recently released "Recommended Native Pollinator Friendly Plant List for Greater Asheville".Then Dr. David Cypcar from Allergy Partners of WNC will talk to us about allergies and allergic reactions in bee keeping.

For more on Bee City USA, check it out at www.beecityusa.org/resources  Asheville is the first of what the Bee City USA Steering Committee hopes will be many Bee City USA designees.  The program encourages city leaders to celebrate and raise awareness of the contribution bees and other pollinators make to our world, asserting that if we reduce pesticide use and plant a diversity of native plants rich in nectar and pollen, we will help both native and honey bees, as well as thousands of other pollinator species.

7:00 pm on Monday, May 6th at Groce United Methodist Church
at 954 Tunnel Rd in Asheville, NC.  Come early at 6:30 for informal mentoring, conversations about your bees, and an opportunity to talk to other beekeepers.
