Marin Bee Company teams up with Whole Foods Market in Novato to present a free hands-on beekeeping series, "The Basics of Backyard Beekeeping". It kicks off with a beehive installation in their beautiful patio garden, on September 22nd at 10:00 am and will occur monthly over the next year as part of Whole Foods "Share the Buzz" campaign, which aims to heighten awareness about the struggling honeybee and Colony Collapse Disorder through community outreach.

Meet us at Whole Foods Market on the 1st Saturday of each month at 11:00 am, located at 790 DeLong Ave in Novato and be prepared to suit up in a beekeeper's jacket and veil for a close up look at live bees. This program continues Whole Foods and Marin Bee Company's mission to create educational programs through environmental stewardship. Both are committed to demystifying beekeeping so that hobbyists can own and maintain their own beehives, while enjoying the tremendous satisfaction that comes from actively helping the environment and harvesting their own healthy raw honey.

Monthly happenings will include hands-on activities such as tending to the hive, planting a bee friendly garden, fun educational programs for children, cooking classes and recipes, film screenings and more! People of all ages are welcome.
