Wednesday, January 19, 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm – The Buzz on Beekeeping

Learn the art, science, and craft of beekeeping from Beekeepers’ Warehouse owner Nancy Bentley Mangion, in this one session class, The Buzz on Beekeeping,  to be held at The Arnold Arboretum on Wednesday, January 19, from 6:30 – 9 pm. She will discuss equipment, site requirements, environmental benefits, and a bit of the history of beekeeping. She will also touch upon beeswax crafts, the medicinal uses of honey and beeswax, and have honey for tasting and purchase. There’s much to learn and gain through a closer connection to these vital pollinators.
