The monthly WBFS meeting is this Sunday (21st Feb) 3-4.30pm at the Woodend Neighbourhood House. The main topic will be ways to extract honey. (I know that for most of us it has been a very lean year for honey but it is always good to be prepared). We shall compare the various merits and disadvantages with harvesting with an extractor and crushing in a stocking or muslin. We shall also discuss how to register your hives with DEDJTR (very important). Please bring $5 and a small plate of goodies.

Also thanks to Matty and Sam we have terrific “Woodend Bee-Friendly Society” patches for your beesuits for only $10. The patches are 10 x 5 cm. We have a great little Society here; let’s flaunt it!
