There is an endless list of references for beginner and advanced beekeepers. So the saying goes, ask 5 beekeepers a question and you'll get 7 answers. Here's a place to get you started.
Every backyard beekeeper needs a place to start and a place to keep going. View our list of resources including books, supplies, videos, and more.

Something to Share: Bring some food to share! You're welcome to bring anything but we ask that members with last name A-M should bring a Side Dish and members with last name N-Z bring a Dessert.
Donate for the Auction: one of our fun traditions is an auction with items donated from members. This is a great way to share something bee-themed (or not) related items and earn some money for the club! In years past members have donated (and we have subsequently auctioned) bottles of wine, plants, framed bee photos and memorabilia, beeswax candles, beekeeping supplies, and much more! Think ahead for what you might donate and don't forget to bring some money in case there is something you would like to bid on!
