KFPL Live presents Beekeeping
- Start Date:

- Isabel Turner Branch 935 Gardiners Rd.
Have you ever wondered if beekeeping is for you? What exactly is involved in cultivating a hive that produces honey and other products? And what would happen to world food crops if bees keep dying off?
Harley Gallagher, Vice President of the Limestone Beekeepers Guild, will be giving a talk on beekeeping at 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 20, at our Isabel Turner branch. Harley will speak on his experiences as a beekeeper and the role of the Guild, as well as ways for non-beekeepers to support honey bees and native pollinators. (For example, homeowners can delay mowing their lawns so that dandelions are available longer to help feed hungry bees.)
Come hear the scoop about the hive! Part of the library’s monthly KFPL Live Speakers’ Series, this event is open to all adults and teens, and registration is not required. For more information visit www.kfpl.ca .
