Ojai Valley Beekeepers Meeting
Thursday July 21st, 6:00 PM
Farmer and the Cook annex
339 W El Roblar
Park on side street

Last week’s screening of the beautiful, exciting, and inspiring feature length documentary, “Queen of the Sun” has tapped into a large enthusiasm for honey bees and beekeeping in the Ojai Valley. With the help of Renee Roth, a list of around sixty people have added their names to a list of those interested in starting a beekeeping club in Ojai. Farmer and the Cook has generously offered up their annex for a kick off meeting of a new club on Thursday evening, July 21st, at six o’clock. This is a space they normally rent out, so we are asking a suggested donation of $ 5.00 to defray their expense and that we park in the surrounding neighborhood and not jam their parking lot.

A bee club can offer a lot of advantages to prospective, new, and experienced beekeepers. We could offer a beginners course to get people started, sponsor speakers on various topics, and provide a social base for increasing everyone’s base of knowledge, expertise, and appreciation for bees in our livesI hope you can come and increase your joy in being with bees.
