Sun Foundation offers Bee class
A Bee Workshop covering the basics of starting beekeeping, will be held 12:30-4:30 p.m. April 3 at the Sun Foundation Center. Cost is $10.
Package installation will be with live bees, weather permitting. If you are allergic to bees you should not attend the installation.
Balm and salve making will include making 10 tubes of your own home made lip balm. Anyone who is planning on beginning beekeeping this year should order their bees as soon as possible. If you are planning on trapping a wild swarm you should be fine starting in April. We are not able to supply nor will we be able to get package bees as late as April.
Contact your local Dadant or beekeeping club for a supplier of packages near you.
