Starting a Beehive Workshop
November 14, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10
Join WSU Extensions Small Acreage Program for a workshop that teaches participants how to set up their own honey bee hive. Honey bees are amazing pollinators. As they gather nectar and pollen for their survival, they also pollinate important crops such as apples, sweet cherries, blueberries, melons, almonds and broccoli. Whether you are a small farmer looking to increase your crop yields or an urban gardener hoping to support honey bee populations in your community, this workshop will teach you what you need to know to create and care for your hive of honey bees. Learn valuable advice from Charles Bennett, past president of the Northwest Queen Bee Rearing Club. Bennett will discuss how to support local honey bees, how to get started as a beekeeper, and seasonal maintenance tips.
