Amazon Neighborhood is all abuzz with the activities of a new bee co-op which helps interested persons raise their own bees, assist others to raise bees, or simply own and host their own hive managed by other co-op members.
Co-Op members installed 8 new hives last Saturday in Amazon and two in other areas. This week we captured a swarm and installed an 11th hive.
Interested persons can learn more at amazonbeepeople.blogspot.com or are welcome to contact David Stucky at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541.543.6458.

On April 11th, The newly formed Amazon Bee C0-Op will be installing bees into the 10 new hives members built over the past couple of weeks. We’ll be starting about 9am and plan to be finished by about 4pm.
Persons interested in helping or just watching are welcome to email: email@example.com for more information.

Anyone in Amazon interested in working with me to form a neighborhood bee co-op is invited to an informal brainstorming meeting March 18th 5:30pm at McMenamin’s East 19th Street cafe.
The season to make new hives is rapidly approaching, but there’s still time!
Goals I have in mind are:
- Increase the number of bee-friendly hives in the neighborhood
- Work with others to enjoy these wonderful creatures
- Produce lots of great hyper-local honey!
I build my own hives and can help other co-op members do the same in my shop for cost of materials. Swarm season is coming soon and will provide opportunities to start new hives.
