Arranged to have Christy Hemenway of Gold Star Honeybees Maine come to Fort Atkinson for a two day workshop on Natural Beekeeping in top bar hives. Lucky enough to get an amazing group of students from as far as Kentucky. We all learned so very much.
Please plant flowers for the bees. Be cautious. People have reported nurseries, specifically Home Depot, with plants labeled as being treated with neonicotinoids to prevent ‘pests’. ‘Neonics’ have been identified as interfering with brain processing in our pollinators such as bumble and honey bees. Please avoid them in your own yard.
