OPEN HIVE EVENT!
State Apiarist Jen Lund will be conducting an open hive session for SCBA members on Saturday, June 26th at 10:00 am at 123 Harpswell Neck Rd in Harpswell.
The Sagadahoc County Beekeepers Association is a non-profit organization that promotes education in matters related to bees and beekeeping, assists other Associations and Chapters in promoting successful beekeeping, and fosters congeniality among beekeepers.
We welcome residents of Sagadahoc and adjacent counties who are currently keeping bees, or just thinking about it. We offer a mentoring program that geographically matches experienced beekeepers with novices.
Meetings are held at the Topsham Grange Hall, 47 Pleasant St off US Rt 201 in Topsham, on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, year round.
Doors open at 6:00 pm for socializing and refreshments and the business meeting starts at 6:30, followed at 7:00 by a guest speaker or round-table discussion.
An “open hive” meeting is held in June at one of our club member’s apiaries.
On the fourth Saturday of each month at 8:00 am, we also get together for a “Bee Breakfast” at the Fairground Cafe in the Topsham Fair Mall to talk about–you guessed it–honey bees.
