Ken Sikora, 25+ years of Beekeeping Experience

Wanted: New and novice Beekeepers!

Pollinators are in short supply and you’re needed to support them! Ken Sikora, who has more than 25 years of beekeeping experience, will share what clothing and equipment you need, the costs of beekeeping, where to get bees, determining good location for a hive, what mentoring help is available, and more.

You’ll also learn the answers to a variety of bee questions including why the drones (male bees) have grandparents, but not a father, and how honeybees and human beings are the only two species in which members can tell one another the location of important food sources.
