Bee Yard

The Beeline newsletter needs you! Within our By-Laws one of our objectives is ‘To advance the art of beekeeping, honey production, and related interests’. We have a CIBA Member Contributions section that is just waiting to publish your heart-warming, humorous, passionate stories, experiences and journeys, as well as the sharing of your knowledge that can educate and engage our CIBA members to meet our club objective, such as:

  • Your beekeeping journey
  • Your experiences as a tenured beekeeper
  • Your experiences as a newbie beekeeper
  • The knowledge that you have relative to:
    • Honey plants
    • Overwintering
    • Pesticides
    • Urban beekeeping pros and cons
    • Rural beekeeping pros and cons
    • Making splits
    • Theft
    • Swarm control
The list is endless! The Coast Guard slogan “Be Part of the Action” applies; the sharing of your experiences, stories and knowledge as a CIBA member is a compelling means to engage, inspire and motivate our readers and assist our beekeepers to further their knowledge and education about a subject that is near and dear to all of us. Please contact me if you would like to contribute, and need help getting started. I would be happy to gather information from you, and assist you with writing the story/article if you would find my support beneficial. I look forward to hearing from you! I will leave you with the following quote by Mahatma Gandhi:

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
