2016 Beekeeping Introduction Talk and Tour

This brief introduction to beekeeping will go over what is involved for the backyard beekeeper to start up a few hives for their garden, small farm, or small orchard. It is also a good starting point for the person that has thought about keeping bees someday and wants to know what is involved with getting started. Kids are welcome and encouraged to attend as we will have an observation hive and you can suit up to see the inside of a working and active beehive if you like.
We will highlight why it makes sense to add honey bees to your garden, backyard, or small farm, the cost estimates, time estimates, and various resources to help you get started.
There will also be a question and answer time. The ending time is estimated at 5:30 pm so it will be brief, but you can come and go as you please and it won’t be done until all of your questions are answered.
