Learn the benefits of keeping bees in a garden and how to harvest their surplus honey. This class will give an overview of how a bee colony operates, the importance of bee pollination to agriculture, the equipment needed to keep bees, and the duties of the beekeeper. A honey tasting to appreciate the taste and quality of honey produced without pesticides will conclude the seminar.
Bill Weibalk and Will Ackley, both dedicated local bee keepers, who currently manage several active hives at Sonoma Garden Park, will facilitate the workshop.
