The Workings of Honey Bee Hives Bee-Ginners Seminar

June 25, 2016 - 1:30pm

As a young boy, Will “the Bee Man” Patterson was introduced to his life-long interest in bees by his grandfather and has been raising honey bees for over twenty years. In addition to working with bees on TeaThyme Herb & Fruit Farm, he also assists clients setting up and installing their own bee hives. Join Will at Blue Deer and learn about the workings of honey bee hives.

Participants will gain a better understanding of the crucial relationship between human beings and our environment. Learn why bees are vital beyond the production of honey.

The program will end with a Q & A period and we’ll even sweeten the deal with a jar of honey!

Each participant will be given a “bee” head net to keep. Everyone must wear a heavy long sleeve shirt (flannel, chamois, corduroy). Please wear some type of hat, sun hat, baseball cap.

Important-NO perfume, aftershave or scented items!
