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.
