The weather outside is frightful.  Come in from the cold as we offer a trio of programs to get you looking forward to Spring and planning for the new garden season. 

1:00 pm: Beekeeping Essentials for the First Year
Learn how to get started keeping bees – discover how to use beekeeping tools; find out where propolis, flower pollen honey, and royal jelly come from; learn about the medicinal benefits from honeybee byproducts and about diseases afflicting honeybees such as colony collapse disorder.  A complete beehive will be on hand to offer an up close view of this fascinating and vital part of every gardener’s ecosystem.

Michele McNeal will give you a quick introduction to our Seed Sharing Library.  Don’t forget to stop by and pick up some heirloom variety seeds to get you started.
