Virginia Giving Away Free Hives and Equipment to Beekeepers

By Heather Callaghan, Natural Blaze

The state of Virginia wants to encourage bee populations. After all, bees are said to be responsible for one out of every three bites of food.

To get beekeepers started, Virginia is going to give away up to three hives and other equipment to eligible beekeepers.

Good News Network reports:

The Beehive Distribution Program, which is being administered by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS), provides beehive equipment directly to eligible beekeepers.

Residents of Virginia who are 18 years of age or older are eligible to receive up to three beehive units per year. Individuals who receive a beehive unit will be registered as beekeepers with VDACS, allowing for periodic inspection of beehives by the agency.

Staff will review applications for the Beehive Distribution Program in the order in which they are received. If all available beehive units are distributed before the fiscal year ends on June 30, 2019, VDACS will stop accepting applications and notify applicants that the program has ceased processing applications for the fiscal year. Applications will not carry forward to the next fiscal year
