    Smile Hi From Saint Paul MN!!

    Hi All,

    My name is Tim and I have always wanted to be a beekeeper. I have never really looked into because it seemed to be a unrealistic dream. I saw a few hives the other day and it rekindled that dream, so here I am. I plan to start next spring, which will allow me time to get my equipment, read more and take a beekeeping class. I have a family member with a small organic farm with no bees so I have a great starting place for my hive

    Thanks,
    Tim B

    U of M teaches a great beekeeping course. Dr. Marla Spivak at the U is an acclaimed beebreeder. Highly recommended.

    Welcome, Tim!

    I'd recommend joining the Minnesota Hobby Beekeepers Association. It's a great (and fun) group of folks that are always willing to help beekeepers regardless of their experience.

    We meet monthly on the U of M's St. Paul campus.

    Tim,
    Sorry, I didn't see your question until this morning.
    You can just show up and check it out. Were you there last night?

    Hi Tim! It's good to see the beekeeping scene in the twin cities growing! I'm fairly new to it myself.

    I currently have a conflict with Tuesday nights otherwise I'd be at the MN hobby beekeepers meetings. Joining the local groups is definitely a good way to go!
