    Re: Help for All Beekeepers

    Re: Help for All Beekeepers

    I'm okay with this (lack of govt funds), am not a fan of using taxpayer money to fund other people so they can make money/have fun/not work. Don't think debt is a tool for success. An extra job...

    Someone out that way sells fireweed honey and blackberry; the fireweed is fantabulous. It grows where the soil has been disturbed, and forest clearcuts. If you're in town, the bees will forage in...
