Meetings

Our regular Meetings are usually held on the first Thursday night in every month at 6:30 at Collegeside Church of Christ 252 East 9th Street Cookeville, TN 38501. Please subscribe to our email newsletter for up to date information.

Occasionally meetings have to be rescheduled – usually because of conflict with a holiday or  event.  The best way to find out in such cases is by either checking the website (upcoming meeting schedules are usually mentioned in the top article a few days before the first Thursday) or better yet subscribe to the email newsletter in the upper right hand area of every page on the website.  The newsletter is freely distributed to anyone who wants to subscribe.

    I have not received for the past two months email notices from Cookeville beekeepers. I am subscribed to receive emails. Is there anything I can do to correct this? I miss getting my emails, especially since I have not attended the last two meetings. I really need that reminder!
    Also, I have given my bees today (2/16/2014) pro-patties. I have never fed my bees before, am I too early?
    Thank you!

    I am trying to select a site for my first hives. How far apart should the hives be? Is there a minimum distance?

    Thanks,
    Alan

      We’re new to beekeeping, but we were told by ?? (can’t recall ) that it would be nice if the hives were spaced 6′ apart. So, this is what we’ve done…
      However, it’s apparently not necessary as I’ve seen hives one right next to the other on the same long bench stand, pallet or blocks….

    There is not a meeting tomorrow night – Instead we are having a field day on Saturday. I sent out an email, but apparently you didn’t get it. I will post all of the info on the website right now.
