Backyard Beekeeping Workshop
Event tags: Gardening, Garden, organic, bees, beekeeping, homestead
Bees are critical to the health of our ecosystems and the sustainability of our food supply. 90% of wild plants and 35% of food crops grown by humans depend on insect pollination. Almost 80% of all pollination is performed by honey bees — nature's hardest workers.
Despite their importance to global and local ecosystems, honey bee populations are declining rapidly. Beekeeping at home helps support your local population while making your gardens thrive and providing raw, organic honey.
Join us in The Ecology Center garden and around our beehive for a hands-on workshop that will equip you with the knowledge you need to start and maintain your own beehive at home.
All attendees will receive an informational hand-out to complement the subjects covered in the workshop. We will also have a few samples of honey to taste from The Ecology Center's network of all-natural beekeepers.Visit Event Website for More Info
