Are you curious about beekeeping?
Learnall about working with bees, just as a hobby or as a more serious endeavor, at the Goodrich Memorial Library, Newport on Saturday, April 9 at 10:30am.
The concern over the disappearance of local bee populations has greatly increased interest in beekeeping by farmers and gardeners who depend on bees for the pollination of plants.
Jim Reed (a local registered apiary owner/ Beekeeper wannabee), will present a pictorial and verbal description of his experience as a first year beekeeper. From start up to harvest and all the bumps between, Jim will take you through a year of honey making. His presentation will suggest ways of getting started, possible cost, the learning curve, time requirements and more.
Jim Reed is a lifelong resident of the area and previous Owner/ Dealer of REEDS MOBIL, Owner of UP THE CREEK PADDLESPORTS, in Newport and KAMPTOKUMTO Vacation rentals in Jay, Vermont. He has also been a Previous Officer and director of The Derby Fish and Game Club. Any interested persons are welcome. All donations will benefit the Goodrich Memorial Library.
