Have an extra brood box/hive starter....Free to a good and committed keeper

Hi. I got a free brood box (starter hive, minus roof) with frames at our recent bee conference. I am clearing clutter and unable to use this hive at this time. I am happy to give it to anyone who needs a hive to get started with or extend their yard with. Phone me 310210 8387 or send me a note and I will find a way to get it to you! If helpful, I'm also happy to donate to Al for his not for profit. Best wishes! SarahSee More
