Over 25% of our food crops are pollinated by honey bees, a species under stress due to rapid environmental change. At this workshop, Dave Fruchtenicht, who sells honey at the Durham Farmers' Market and has managed bees for 50 years, will walk us through the basics, with demos on hives management and the tools and supplies you need to get started for those who want to try their hand at some hives. He will also describe the amazing life cycle and social life of bees and discuss the challenges posed by Colony Collapse Disorder and other stresses bees face and methods beekeepers use to help their bees cope. Suggested donation: $10 Maximum: 20 , so please RSVP: [masked] so we will hold a slot for you.
