Jeremy Rose, author of "Beekeeping in Coastal California" will be the guild guest speaker for our November 1, meeting.
Jeremy also a partner in the beekeeping company called "The California Bee Company, LLC" which exists to promote the health and well-being of honey bees. "We keep healthy bee hives using natural management methods. As an ongoing effort we are breeding healthy, gentle queen bees that have mite-resistant behaviors. Starting in 2011, we will be selling queen bees that are locally adapted to the California Coast." The California Bee Company also strives to encourage small-scale beekeeping, and in 2010 published Beekeeping in Coastal California, a concise book that describes beekeeping methods as well as the flowers used by honey bees in this unique area of the world.
