Grow Local South Texas is offering an introduction to beekeeping at the Learning Garden. Attendees will learn about the life cycle of honeybees, parts of a bee hive, use of a smoker, and inspection of a hive. The workshop will focus on basic beekeeping and will cover the considerations of backyard beekeepers.
Backyard beekeeping is well within your reach. Honeybees make a productive and friendly addition to your yard and garden. They not only make honey for you, they also pollinate your gardens. Some plants can self pollinate, others can only be pollinated by animals, and many are far more productive when they are served by bees.
Are you GROWing something that benefits from honeybee pollination? This list is just the beginning.
In addition to food production, honeybees pollinate many herbs and peppers, as well as ornamental flowering varieties of plants and trees.
In this workshop, we will take up to 10 student into the bee enclosure and let each student manipulate the hive (if they're comfortable doing so). We provide netted hats and duct tape. Students must wear long pants and sleeves and bring gloves.
GROW Local operates the only community bee hive in the Coastal Bend and we provide the only hands-on introduction to beginner beekeepers in our region. Come join us for the fun at the Learning Garden.
