Beekeeping 101, co-sponsored by Dexter's Abbott Memorial Library and DDATT, will be presented Thursday, August 25 6-8pm at the Abbott Memorial Library meeting room.
Leigh Wiley, a member of the Penquis Beekeepers, will discuss the basics of beekeeping: obtaining bees, the functions of workers, drones and queen in the hive, components of the hive, activities of beekeeping throughout the year, and more.
Leigh has been keeping hives since 1974 and is now up to 30-35. If you have been thinking about keeping bees and/or are interested in learning more about the lives of bees here is your opportunity to begin at the beginning with this free workshop!
Please phone the library at 924-7292 to pre-register – seating is limited.
Also, while your garden is in full bloom or production we encourage you to take a few pictures and submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org
During the winter we'll put all the pictures together for a tour of our summer/fall gardens! Time and location will be announced.
Please submit pictures as jpegs with proper reduction for email/storage, include your name and contact information, provide appropriate descriptions (or none) as you wish.
