Nevins Library Presents:

A Year in the Life of a Honeybee Colony

and its Beekeeper

Thursday, April 27th at 7pm

 

Birgit deWeerd is a beekeeper in Bedford, MA. She became fascinated by beekeeping 30 years ago and has been committed to expanding the understanding of, and the respect for, the importance of honeybees in our environment ever since.

With her slide show, Birgit takes you through the activities in and around a beehive, starting in January and ending in the Fall with the honey harvest.

She also will talk about many of the pollen and nectar producing blossoms the bees visit on their foraging trips throughout the seasons, opening another gardening dimension and, maybe, setting the seed for the start of a most interesting hobby: of becoming a beekeeper yourself.

She will also have honey and bee related items to sell after the program!
