Fortunately, when the bee tree snapped off,
it broke above the bee hive.
So our pollinating native bees are still humming in and out of there.
Their exit used to be on the other side of the tree,
but they’re using this new entrance now.
You can sweeten your food experience with honeybees.
Anyone can be a beekeeper! From keeping a single hive in your
backyard or 100 hives; learn how to get started. Beekeeping is a fun
and important part of growing local. Raynae’ will share resources on
how to get started with your own hive. Watch your own hive pollinate
your garden and reward you with a sweet treat!
Who should attend: All ages interested in keeping bees!
My presentation will be about how I became interested in honeybees
and where my research has led me. It will begin with very basic
information about honeybees and how they are important to our
ecology. Then I will touch on how the monocultures and
pesticides and GMO/systemic pesticides are
killing the bees and our culture and environment as we know it.
I will have pamphlets on GMO’s, how to make your own
pesticides/insecticides that are safe for pollinators, what plants
to grow to encourage a bio-diverse ecology at home for pollinators
and a few others.
