Community Hive Collaborative Purchase 2014

Every year, since 2010, we have organized a Collaborative Purchase of Honeybees and Equipment, and each year it has been an astounding success. We double in the number of colonies of bees we bring in annually as well as the quantity of equipment purchased. The 2014 season is going to be different in that we are NOT going to organize to Collaborative Purchase of Equipment. We ARE still going to organize the purchase of honeybees though, looking to bring in another 125 nucleus colonies in for 2014.  For more information, please go to
