Pollinating birds and insects are a fascinating and necessary part of our ecosystem. The human diet is just one part of the world that depends on these hard-working creatures. In this basic introduction to beekeeping, we will learn about working with the common western honey bee (Apis millifera). This course is geared to those who are interested in putting a few hives in their back yard or just want to learn a few interesting facts about bees. More in depth and specified courses will be taught throughout the summer.
We will cover three essential elements of beekeeping:
- PARTS OF A HIVE (Who's in there and what do they do?)
- EQUIPMENT NECESSARY (What do I need to get started?)
- GOOD FORAGE (What does a bee eat and what are some good plants to provide this?)
Your presenter will be Justin Armstrong of ABQ HIVE RENTAL, a local business renting hives to residential and small farm customers in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe areas. We will have equipment to get your hands on, and handouts to take home with you. After the presentation there will be lots of time for questions. Children are welcome. See you there!
We have Winter Jasmine in stock, along with these "Next to Bloom" shrubs:
