Does anyone here keep bees? My neighbors hive died this winter during the cold snap. I kind of remember something about grants for new colonies or something along those lines.

Anyway, I''m just trying to help them out trying to find an avenue for them to get a low-cost (or no-cost) new colony.

We keep bees, but I don't know of any grants to replace lost colonies. You might contact the Knox County Beekeepers Association president Lynda Rizzardi at, and visit
