General meetings are held on the first Thursday each month except January, starting at 6:30pm with a session designed to instruct new beekeepers on various basic aspects of beekeeping. Parallel to that, we also feature a Discussion Group, also at 6:30, for more experienced beekeepers to share their insights and discuss what they have learned over many years in the field.
Refreshments and networking run from around 7:15 - please bring your own cup or buy one of our KeepCups.
This is followed by our General Meeting from 7:45 – 9.00pm
We have great guest speakers, practical demonstrations and workshops designed to benefit the art of beekeeping through enjoyment and knowledge.
An entry fee of $3 for WAAS members / $5 for non-members covers light refreshments and your chance to win a door prize.
