NCBA Meeting @ Jesus Rodarte Community Center
May 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

We will start the meeting with an open discussion of, followed by voting on, the proposed updates to the NCBA Constitution and Bylaws that have been tabled since our October business meeting.  These updates are intended to clarify the mission of the NCBA as well as the roles of the Executive Committee and its members; provide members more flexibility in matters brought to Membership for a vote; and address ways to handle changing circumstances that call for a response.

We believe strongly that these updates need to be approved, and will help protect the interests of Membership and promote the highly effective Association that you, our members, deserve.

Below you’ll find links to a more detailed summary of the changes and to the revised Constitution and Bylaws themselves.

The next topic is Spring Beekeeping Activities – with a discussion and open Question and Answer session.  We know this is a busy Beekeeping time of year, and want to help you be successful.

Bee Safe Neighborhoods @ Janet Kilby's home
Jan 4 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

You are invited to my home at 1571 Judson Drive at 10 AM on Saturday, January 4th to learn how to make your neighborhood Bee Safe one for our families and our pollinators. We can reduce health risks for people and pollinators living in neighborhoods by establishing greatly reduced or pesticide free zones. Two items will be covered:

1. Nancy Griffith of Bee Safe Neighborhoods | Living Systems Institute / Honeybee Keep / Nice World will present a model for approaching neighbors in an outreach to reduce or eliminate pesticide use and to increase pollinator plantings. Our focus is friendly, listening based, educational outreach which offers tools to make it easier for people to consider going pesticide free.

After hearing the presentation, if you decide you would like to approach your neighbors, we will have sample print outs and electronic links to information to support you such as:

  • brochure on the importance of pollinators;
  • list of neonicotinoids and related systemics so people can check labels;
  • list of plants that support pollinators and make lovely landscape additions;
  • handout on cancer and pesticides, especially child health
  • list of eco friendly garden centers or landscape management companies
  • a pledge sheet to track address of people committed to a pollinator friendly yard.

We hope you will decide to join us the adopting the goal for your neighborhood of reaching 75 contiguous homes pledged to Bee Safe. Bring a neighbor or a few from your area and we can work as teams. Many hands make light work, as they say!

Finally, in midsummer, anyone from our January gathering who has collected pledges to create a Bee Safe Neighborhoods will be invited to a mid summer picnic to celebrate our success.

 

  1. We will also provide an update on the status Mesa Park at Hartford and Table Mesa in Boulder. Discussion will center around promoting a family and pollinator healthy park design.

We are planning a quick and concise meeting with plenty of written handouts to support your efforts. We expect the business to be done by 11, but if you wish to stay to network until noon, you are welcome to do so. Please do RSVP so I know how much tea and goodies to provide.

NCBA Monthly Meeting @ Berthoud Community Center
Feb 20 @ 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Diana Sammataro and Miles McGaughey

Diana Sammataro will be in the area in February, and has agreed to speak at our meeting on February 20th in Berthoud. She is a nationally-known researcher at the Carl Hayden Honey Bee Research Center in Tucson, AZ. If you are unfamiliar with Diana’s work, a profile/biography can be found here:http://www.ars.usda.gov/pandp/people/people.htm?personid=31186. She also co-wrote the Beekeeper’s Handbook which used to be the text reference for the NCBA beginning beekeeping class. She was here about 4 years ago and was very well received. Our thanks goes out to Beth Conrey, who is helping to coordinate Diana’s Colorado schedule, and let us know of this opportunity. Our meeting will start with BCBA President Miles McGaughey telling us about “Shaking Bees” – how he and Tom Theobold produce packages of bees for local beekeepers each year out at Koehnen’s in California.
