ANN ARBOR, Mich. – What’s the buzz about beekeeping?
Find out on Saturday, Feb. 6, at a free two-hour lecture hosted online by Ann Arbor Backyard Beekeepers (A2B2).
The lecture will cover what it takes to get started in beekeeping, why community members might want to try and what to expect as a beekeeper.
“So You Want to be a Beekeeper?” will be held over Zoom from 1-3 p.m.
The lecture will be led by A2B2′s Bee School lead instructor, Dave Pearce, who runs the club’s apiary at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and owns Local Buzz Bees & Honey in Livonia.
A2B2 speaker coordinator and liaison Anne Barratt-Fornell said that when the organization held the same lecture last month, community members were so enthusiastic that the Zoom call quickly exceeded its participant limit. The organization even had a guest tune in from England, according to Barratt-Fornell.
For the lecture this Saturday, the organization is ready to speak with up to 500 potential beekeepers.
