Do you currently have a hive, interested in getting a hive or just want to know more about bees? Chris & Lindsay, of Beeproject Apiaries, will cover the basic needs of honeybees, acquiring a colony, intro to honeybee diseases and pests, honey yields and extraction, and prepping a hive for winter.
Beekeeping is a wonderful hobby that can be approached in a sustainable and fun way. A honey extracting demo as well as handling beekeeping equipment will give participants a chance to get hands-on!
Honey extraction demo will include using volunteers to uncap honeycomb and spin the hand-powered extractor. Get a taste of the sweet yield from the group extraction. Participants will handle various tools to aid in their understanding of tasks and challenges of hobby beekeeping.
