Q&A + Discussion Time

Each session starts with an open question & answer period followed by a seasonally-appropriate topic discussion to help guide you through the beekeeping year. Open to every beekeeper regardless of experience or the type of equipment you use, these sessions will support your beekeeping practice and help you get the critical information you need to be successful.

When & Where

We've held Bee Talks on the second Thursday of each month* at the Rockfall Foundation, located at 27 Washington Street in Middletown. The foundation operates in the historic deKoven House where there is ample parking and convenient public lots for additional paid parking. However, due to the Covid restrictions, we are holding Bee Talks on Zoom until further notice. CBA Members can attend for free. Once registered for a particular month, members receive a Zoom link via e-mail and then a reminder the day before the event.  


*Subject to change.

Bee Talks are led by CBA President Bill Hesbach, an Eastern Apicultural Society-Certified Master Beekeeper and  graduate of the University of Montana’s Master Beekeeping Program. Bill is also an author, and you'll find his writings on beekeeping in Bee Culture magazine and the American Bee Journal.
