Living Systems Institute / Honeybee Keep present:
Third Annual Honeybee Hive Build, 2014
Saturday, January, 25, 2014 from 8AM to 5PM, backup bad weather date February 1, 2014.
Lunch will be provided, organic, local vegetarian and chicken.
14020 W. 32nd Ave

Come and work with other beekeepers to build your own hive. Meet kindred spirits, talk about bees, work hard, get fed lunch and take home your hive at the end of the day. Bring your camera. Plan to have fun and go home tired. You contribute $150 toward the work of Living Systems Institute to make Food Production Cells and you take home your own modified Langstroth hive. Payment is required in advance to reserve your spot. Mail your check to the address above.

The 2014 Hive Build will be for a modified Langstroth design: All 8-frame mediums (4) and top entrance. Frames will be foundationless with wooden starter strip suggestion for building comb.

What you get:
Top with built-in reducible entrance.
Four 8-frame medium boxes with the 32 frames for inside.
Bottom Board.

You can see pictures of past builds and get an idea of what the 2014 build will create by looking here:
