LYONS, NEBRASKA – Nebraskans interested in learning about the role and importance of bees are invited to a beekeeping workshop hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs. This free event will be offered in English and Spanish.
“Explore Beekeeping” will occur online, on Wednesday, March 10, from 6 to 8 p.m.
“Beekeeping is a rewarding hobby with business opportunities,” said Kirstin Bailey, Center for Rural Affairs senior project associate. “It offers you a chance to connect with a large community and you can engage your family. Beekeeping is a physical and intellectual activity that strengthens your connections to nature, and furthers your understanding of natural systems.”
Attendees will learn about bee biology, how the hive functions as a system, start-up costs, and the process of getting started.
