Last night the City of Alamogordo voted to allow beekeeping within the city limits. Beekeeping has been illegal there for the last 35 years. Beekeepers throughout the state took the time to call and write the Commissioners and the Mayor and voice their support of future beekeepers there.
You did it, you took the time to change the world in a small way, a little bit of our natural world will be coming back to the city.

Many thanks to all of you who wrote to the Alamogordo Commissioners, they commented on the support from around the state. Special thanks to Paul McCarty of Black Mesa Honey Bees, you knocked it out of the park! Thanks again to Kate Whealen who did a fantastic radio interview. Because of you all, there will be beekeeping in the City of Alamogordo. It just feels good doesn’t it?
If you want to support bees and beekeeping and you live near Alamogordo, tomorrow night is the Commission Meeting that will decide the future of beekeeping in that city. We need your support at 7:00PM. There is very vocal opposition and we need you there IN PERSON to show your support. The address is 1376 9th Street, Alamogordo, NM
Thank you in advance!
A special thank you to Kate Whealen who NAILED a radio interview on our behalf!

I have been very impressed by the build up of the BeeWeaver bees that I have, but not impressed enough apparently. Two of my five hives have swarmed after only three weeks in the box.
Give them plenty of room and watch for queen cells!
Shucks! Had I been paying attention I could have split them and had more hives.
