I know I haven’t posted in a while, but it has been rather quiet with our bees. We tried splitting our one hive, but it was not successful, and we had to combine it back with the original hive. So we have been here with our one hive…until today. We got a new hive! All thanks to a new program called Pay It Forward by Bee Understanding.
Bee Understanding is a non-profit organization dedicated to the understanding, education and promotion of honey bees and beekeeping. The Pay It Forward program gives away a free starter kit, consisting of a hive box, bottom board, lid, frames and working bees to beginner beekeepers in the South Florida area.
