Description

Presented by Peter Cordray, Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens Board Member and Home Beekeeper


Bee facts! Did you know? According to the Penn State University Entomology Department, a hive of honeybees must visit 2 million flowers, flying approximately 55,000 miles to make ONE POUND of honey. Imagine how hard the bees must work to supply the 285,000,000 pounds of honey Americans consume on average each year!


Peter Cordray will present a slide lecture and demonstration on the assembly and workings of a hive. This is an introductory workshop on beekeeping for persons who are captivated by the secret life of bees or those who are interested in getting involved in the fascinating hobby of beekeeping. After the talk, there will be a tasting of honey from the Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens Apiary.


Participants will be invited back in the spring to visit the hives at the Jenkins Apiary (date to be announced).


Cost: Free for members. $10 for non-members. All are welcome. Pre-registration encouraged.
Credit card, check, cash will be accepted at the front desk upon arrival.
