A local beekeepers association is being formed for beekeepers in Polk County and surrounding areas. This non-profit group will be open to first-time, novice and experienced beekeepers, as well as non-beekeepers interested in honeybees or beekeeping.
The group will focus on fostering information and equipment sharing among area beekeepers, improve beekeeping methods and best practices, educating the general public regarding honeybees, encouraging and assisting people who may wish to begin keeping bees and the healthy proliferation of honeybees in our area.
The organizational meeting will be Monday, April 11 at 7 p.m. at the Pine Crest Inn conference center at 85 Pine Crest Lane in Tryon. Everyone is welcome. For more information, contact Carl Caudle at 864-457-6288 or via email at polkbeekeepers@gmail.com.
