What’s the Buzz?: An Update on the Busy Beehives at Durand-Hedden

September 29, 2013, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Join Durand-Hedden’s beekeepers in Grasmere Park Sunday, September 29 as they report on the progress of their two thriving honeybee hives. Bees are vitally important to our world, but many are disappearing due to the mysterious malady of colony-collapse disorder. At 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. our beekeepers will describe what occurs in a year of the life of a hive and what bees require to keep their environment healthy. Each session will end with an explanation of what honey is and a taste testing of honey varieties with different flavors.
