Small Scale Beekeeping
Increase vegetable and fruit yields, protect pollinators, improve local food security and potentially receive a honey bonus. Learn about honeybees’ life cycle, favorite food plants, how to site apiaries, install package bees, collect honeybee swarms, harvest honey and render beeswax. Resources will include nectar plants, equipment needs and potential suppliers.
