New Member | GETTING STARTED

Step 1

Come to the Meetings. You are not limited to one group. Feel free to come to both or simply the one closest to you.. See Calender of Events here and mark your calendar for events you want to participate in or use the handy iCal and GoogleCal buttons to add them automagically.


Step 2

Make sure you’ve provided us your cell phone number to get meeting reminders texted to your cell phone. Reminders are sent 1 week before and the morning of. Not sure, simply text your name and cell number to 239-558-1130 . Don’t forget to let us know which meeting you would like reminders for 😉


Step 3

LIKE our Facebook Page, FOLLOW and SHARE with your other bee loving friends. We don’t always post the same things in both places.


Step 4

Request to JOIN the Private Facebook Group and introduce yourself, then feel free to engage with other members. This is a safe place to ask all your bee ?s you have in between the meetings, post pictures and cheer on your fellow beekeepers, post bee-related articles you find interesting, give recommendations. Post freely!
