The Y Golden Adventurers will be learning about beekeeping on Tuesday, April 16, at the home of Jerry Kerner. Jerry is new to beekeeping but will have assistance from other local keepers who will provide information on bees, hives and honey production.
Honey bees produce commodities such as honey, beeswax, pollen and royal jelly. Beekeepers also use honeybees to pollinate fruit and vegetables. At this time of year, there are no bees in the hives, so those who attend will be able to view and touch the hives without fear of getting stung.
Beekeeping has become very popular in this area and those interested in this hobby are encouraged to attend to learn more. This event is open to the public and will meet at the Y at 12:30 p.m. and carpool to the site.
