Beekeeping and Honeybees
Where would we be without the honeybee? Our tea wouldn’t taste as sweet, sure, but honeybees also account for 80% of all insect pollination, so we’d have a lot fewer fruits and vegetables to eat. Liz Tilton owner of TwoHoneys Bee Company, South Western Ohio Beekeepers Association (SWOBA) President Ray Babcock, and Beekeeper Sandra Murphy join us to explore the world of Honeybees. Sandra Murphy will teach the basics of beekeeping at Gorman Heritage Farm Saturday, February 22, and the SWOBA annual bee schoolwill be held on Saturday March 22 at the Oasis Conference Center.
