Description

Local Master Beekeeper Chris Kelly will present a one hour lecture on some of the basics of beekeeping. Topics covered will include: the cost of getting started, equipment selection, site or hive placement considerations, and a brief overview of the beekeeping calendar year. Chris will also provide information on purchasing bees & equipment. Q & A follows.

Chris Kelly is a Cornell Master Beekeeper and a Cornell University trained entomologist with 49 years of experience keeping bees. As a former professional beekeeper, he helped develop connections with the leading researchers in Apiculture and maintains a perspective on the pressures of keeping bees today. Chris is the owner of North Fork Promise Land Apiaries, a sustainably managed operation in Mattituck, NY. He owns and manages over 200 bee hives and is a consultant for clients along much of the eastern seaboard. His professional and academic beekeeping credentials has given him personal access to the brightest minds in Apiculture and this knowledge he brings to educating the next generation of beekeepers.

Stargazing will follow the presentation (weather permitting).
