Saturday morning 9-3
Richmond County Agricultural Service Center

Rockingham, NC 28379
Sponsored by the Richmond County Beekeepers.
This is a one day event to help introduce new folks to beekeeping. We will briefly cover bee history, woodenware, diseases, hive placement, how to get started, etc. Weather permitting, we will have a working hive inside a cage; along with a beekeeper, that will demonstrate hive manipulation. Parts of the hive, products of the hive and honey bee identification will be observed and pointed out during this process. A light lunch will be served.
