Introduction to Beekeeping
Tuesday, March 5, 2013 from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM (EST)
Have you always wanted bees but didn't know where to start? This crash course in beekeeping will convince you that it is finally time to purchase a hive.
Buddy May, expert beekeeper and owner of May Farms LLC, will present on the importance of bees for the backyard and community garden. He will also cover the basic principles of beekeeping and wet your appetite to learn more. Luckily, he has hands-on workshops during the summer for those who want to become home beekeepers. The workshop will be held on-site at his apiary and 1 acre farm so we will be arranging carpooling for those who want to save on gas.
