An all day open house to officially kick off our project! All sponsors welcome. Feel free to bring a guest or two. Come and check out the apiary, get a guided tour of the bees and our flower/vegetable gardens. Lots of refreshments and snacks!
Learn about the basic setup of a standard 'Langstroth' beehive and it's evolution over time. Just what do all those bees do in there? Tim's homemade pizza will be served for lunch along with other drinks and snacks, please inform of any food allergies and restrictions.
Propolis or 'bee glue', is a sticky, resinuous substance bees create mainly to seal cracks in the hive. It has been used for centuries for all sorts of things but it's immune boosting capabilities are by far the most popular use for it today
At this seminar, Shelley McQuade will talk about it's immune boosting activity and teach attendees how to make their very own tincture from the organic propolis harvested from our hives, which they can take home and use.
