I ran across this article in my facebook feed, and thought maybe some permies could make use of this program: Virginia residents can get free beehives



Backyard beekeepers can apply for hives through the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services on July 1. The General Assembly approved $125,000 for the Beehive Distribution Program that provides free beehive equipment to Virginia residents. Anyone age 18 or older can apply to receive up to three beehives. Recipients will be registered as beekeepers with VDACS and are required to maintain the hives in Virginia.
