Why Become a Beekeeper? @ Green Bay Botanical Garden
Cost: $7/Person; $10/At the Door
Feb 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Ken Sikora, 25+ years of beekeeping experience

Presented in partnership with the UW-Extension and N.E.W. Master Gardener Association.

Experience the enjoyment of tending to a buzzing honeybee hive and observing the consistent pattern of new bees developing in capped cells (the brood) created by a busy ‘queen mother.’  You will learn to understand the way her daughters (the worker bees) tend to the young, guard their home against predators, bring home the hard to find nectar, build comb, clean their hives, turn nectar into honey through cooperation with other bees, the role of her sons (the drones), prepare for winter even though they have not lived long enough to know what winter is, and honor her royal highness, the ‘queen mother.’

It can be a rewarding hobby for those concerned with our food supply and the enjoyment of being connected to nature. Ken will discuss the rewarding products of a hive, the health benefits of pure-raw honey, basic bee biology, what should you plant for bees and pollinators, and the cost of beekeeping.

Equipment setups and charts will be on display.  Informative handouts will be available.
