A Taste of Honey(bees): An Introduction to Bees & Beekeeping with Smart Farm of Barrington

Many people know that honeybees are in trouble but do you know why? Would you like to find out? Would you like to learn what you can do to help the decline? Have you ever thought of keeping bees and harvesting the honey yourself?

Find out all this and more from local beekeeper, Tom Rowan at this beginning beekeeping seminar hosted by Smart Farm of Barrington. It’s happening from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, April 4th. You’ll learn what to do and what not to do in order to help bees survive. What agricultural and habitat practices are adversely affecting honeybees today.

You can even learn the basics of backyard beekeeping to maybe start your own apiary right out your back door. This entertaining and informative forum will show you all the basics.
