The Albion Hills Community Farm operates a small apiary used for pollination, honey production and education. In 2019, the farm began a Hive Share program for people interested in learning about the care and maintenance of honey bees.
Following an indoor presentation on bee behavior, hive equipment, and the benefits and responsibilities involved in beekeeping, participants visited the hives in a small groups to see the bees in action, handle frames of bees, and learn about how the hive functions.
We were unable to offer the Hive Share program in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. For 2021, we are hoping to offer a modified program that can be done safely within current restrictions. This may include an online component and opportunities to visit the hives later in the summer. The program will be appropriate for adults or families.
If you are interested in receiving more information as a potential participant, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will contact you when we have determined appropriate options and costs for this year. We are also interested in hearing about your interests and suggestions.
