It seems a bit ludicrous to think about the BCHPA AGM in October when we just had the semi-annual this past weekend. However this could save you some money, like $60. Our VP, Jeff Lee, is doing some awesome work at bringing in speakers, and in Kamloops on Saturday, the main presentation by Michael Palmer was sold out and late comers had to be turned away. Also, for those of us in the Kootenays, this year’s AGM will be in Kelowna. So not a trip to the coast or Vancouver Island like the last two years. I have also heard that one of the speakers booked is Jerry Hayes, who writes the “Classroom” article in American Bee Journal every month, who was Florida state bee inspector, and who has now gone “over to the Dark Side” and works for Monsanto. Should definitely be interesting!! Anyway, here is the link. You must register before the end of the month to get in on the deal.

I got a call from Mr. Markin of the Castlegar City Council
today. He advised that our project doesn’t fit in their
pilot project as it is for outside bee hives with electric fences.
He said to go ahead with the education program in the schools
and contact the schools directly.
I also sent an email to the Nelson Mayor and council members
to invite them to hear our talk at Seedy Saturday on March 18th
at 11:00. I also mentioned in my email that we would appreciate
their consideration to change their bylaw to allow honey bees
in Nelson. I got one reply from a council member saying he
was out of town but thought our project was great. I haven’t
heard from anyone else.
It will be interesting to see if anyone shows up, especially the Mayor.
Enjoy your class. Linda
