with Bonnie Bollengier, Beekeeper

Sat, Aug 15, 9:00am--12:30pm

Learn the basics about the European Honey Bee (Apis mellifera) which is responsible for pollinating 30% of our food supply. For the past few years, headlines from around the globe have chronicled the declining populations of this important insect. Learn about the duties of the queen, workers and drones which populate a colony. With a general understanding of the life of bees, we’ll discuss how the cycles of the hive interrelate with cycles of plants and the seasons.
