How To Start Beekeeping
Beekeeping can be one of the most rewarding experiences. Whether you are an avid gardener, a honey connoisseur or just want to do your part to help the bees, one of the best ways to learn about bees is to have your own hives. However, beekeeping is not something that one simply signs up for like a spin class at the gym or can be done in a leisurely manner like a crossword puzzle. It is a big responsibility and is also something that requires a basic understanding of bees. It can also be quite costly if you do not know what you are doing or have good guidance. In this special segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer will be joined by Marina Marchese, author of Honeybee: Lessons from an Accidental Beekeeper and Kim Flottum, editor of Bee Culture Magazine to talk about how you can learn to become a beekeeper. We will talk about options for purchasing equipment, kinds of bees, where to locate your hive, how to find a mentor and so much more!
