Passed my exam

Post by Zulu » Mon Mar 07, 2011 6:37 pm

Stage 1

Passed my Certified exam

Now to do practical when available. Luckily Rob has allowed me to help him work his hives - so I do have some hands on, I am not naive to believe I even begin to know enough yet.

Off to Africa tomorrow for 12 days.....

Good job. You'll make it.

Try to visit an apiary or two over there and get pics. It would be interesting to see how they do it.

And leave the Cape Bees there--we already have enough to worry about with other honey bees from that continent.

I passed mine as well! I was worried because I finished so quickly I thought either I actually learned something or was really, really disillusioned. Congratulations. Does anyone know when the bees will be here?

Michelle :roll:
