Sat, July 28, 10:00am-11:00am at Whole Foods & 11:30am-12:00pm at Homeward Bound
Marin Bee Company teams up with Whole Foods and Homeward Bound to present a free workshop on "The Basics of Backyard Beekeeping"
We'll meet in the produce department from 10:00 am to 11:00 am for a discussion and lively hands-on presentation complete with equipment and an observation hive available to see and touch. Then we'll head over to the nearby sustainable garden at the Homeward Bound of Marin at The Next Key Center, 1385 N. Hamilton Parkway Novato, CA from 11:30 am to Noon to watch beekeepers "smoke the bees" before opening a live hive to inspect for queen cells, egg laying patterns, disease, and honey production. Participants are invited to wear their own beekeeping suit, if they would like to close up look at the active hives.
