We hold general meetings on Saturdays in February, June, and November of each year. MSBA meetings last a full day, include nationally-known and local speakers, and generally start with refreshments at 8:30 AM and last until 4 PM.
After receiving a degree in horticulture from UW Madison, Kim Flottum worked four years in the USDA Honey Bee Research Lab, studying pollination ecology. After that, he spent two years raising acres of fruits and vegetables, where bees played a large role. He brings this experience, plus nearly 20 years of writing and editing articles for beekeepers in the monthly magazine Bee Culture. He is the publisher of books on honey bee pests and diseases, marketing, queen production, beekeeping history, beginning beekeeping, and the classic industry reference, The ABC & XYZ of Bee Culture. He is Chairman Emeritus of EAS. [Agenda]
The November meeting also hosts the last Honey Show of the Maryland meeting, offered with the support of the Maryland Fair Board. We have dozens of categories for kids through old timers, and encourage you to participate, and to maybe win one of the many prizes! Check out the categories and the rules!
