Catch the Buzz: Beekeeping Workshop at Emery Farm

Join us for an outdoor beekeeping workshop at Emery Farm in Durham! A basic overview of what’s involved in beekeeping will be given – both as a hobby and an important agricultural activity at Emery Farm. We'll cover: Basic equipment and supplies and cost; amount of time and effort required; and useful sources of information, instruction, and courses. There will also be plenty of time for Q&A and a farm walk to view the hives.

About the presenter: Lee Alexander has been a backyard beekeeper for over 40 years. A member of the Durham Agricultural Commission, he is the lead person for the “Bee Friendly” initiative and “Bee City USA” program. He also oversees the management of the honeybee apiary at Emery Farm.

Participants will also take home a jar of honey made on site!
