Meet your local beekeeper Preston Zale

“Our first meeting will be an overview of bees, beehives, and how to set up a brand new hive. Subsequent meetings will touch on all aspects of beekeeping. We will cover the basics of bees and bee health, beehives and maintenance, and of course, harvesting honey. Our meetings will be held indoor of the hen house with optional trips to visit the hives in the park in walking distance.”
