Free Beekeeping Workshop – July 27th
Join us for a free beekeeping workshop on Saturday, July 27th, from 10:30-11:30 am. The talk will be conducted by beekeeper Claudia Silveira and will feature a demo hive. Ms Silveira will offer a step-by-step introduction to small scale beekeeping, which can be done in a variety of settings, from backyards to rooftops.
Honeybees are mellow and useful creatures that don’t require a lot of maintenance and present little danger to the hobbyist or visitors. One or two beehives are all that’s required for an average family to keep them supplied in honey year-round, with enough to spare for gifts to others or to sell.
A small initial investment in some tools and materials, and a
willingness to learn the ways of the honeybee, are all that’s required
to try this rewarding hobby. Bees are beneficial insects that help
pollinate and keep the balance of our environment. They have been
under threat from development and intensive pesticide use as of late, so starting a beehive in your yard or land will help offset the danger of them disappearing. Beekeeping is the perfect companion hobby to backyard gardening, and Ms Silveira, who is knowledgeable and experienced, will be happy to introduce newcomers to the wonderful world of beekeeping.
