Have you ever wondered if you could start a beehive in your own backyard?
Join Kent Memorial Library and Beavertides Farm on Tuesday, February 23 at 7 p.m. for an exciting Zoom conversation. In this Introduction to Beekeeping, Dan Carr takes you from the anatomy and social structure of honey bees to the basics of managing a hive, and teaches you about what it takes to start your very own beehive.
Dan met his wife Marleen while beekeeping, and together they started a sustainable livestock farm and apiary in Falls Village, CT; Beavertides Farm. Besides raising sheep, goats and millions of honey bees, they teach classes in beekeeping, raising backyard chickens and other farming and homesteading related topics.
