Jan Pinkerton-Spieth, from the Mt. Diablo Beekeeper's Association, brought thousands of friends with her to her workshop at Rodgers Ranch last night. Bees that is! Jan brought an observation hive (containing larvae, capped brood, honey, pollen and, of course, bees!), and she spoke to participants about the biology of bees, equipment for keeping them, what's happening to our bee population lately, bee-friendly gardens, and more. Everyone got to sample Jan's honey, including chestnut and pumpkin!
This blog keeps our members and the public informed of workshops and events at the ranch. We invite you to comment!
