With the growing interest in bees and various social media campaigns encouraging people to “save the bees,” the number of people who become beekeepers each year is rising. However, beekeeping is not easy, nor is it cheap. Many first-time beekeepers become frustrated and overwhelmed and don’t make it through their first year. This program is designed to help you decide whether beekeeping is really for you and will help set you up for success if you decide to pursue it.
We will discuss challenges and rewards associated with beekeeping, as well as alternatives that may be a better fit for your personal needs and goals. You’ll get to know important beekeeping terms, different types of equipment, and learn about valuable resources to help you achieve success on your beekeeping journey. The Jessamine County Public Library is hosting this free, virtual presentation. You will need to register beforehand with the Jessamine County Public Library in order to have the Zoom link emailed to you.
