Event Description:
What's all the buzz about? Bees! Now more than ever, bees are having a moment in the sun for their importance in pollinating the plants that produce our food. As farmers, they've got our vote.

Our favorite beekeeper Carin Zinter will teach WHY these honeybees are so important, explain the tools of the trade, and the basics of getting started with your own hive. From there, you'll suit up and get to observe a hive-check to see what a healthy hive looks like! We'll be on the lookout for a healthy queen, bees busy making honey, pollen stores and more.

Expect to be fascinated, awed, and slightly in love with these little ladies by the time the workshop is over. You'll start to notice honeybees all over the city once you know what to look for!
