Apiary to hold free 'Spring Bee-In' March 2

Western Today staff

The Outback Farm's annual "Spring Bee-In" workshop will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 2, Fairhaven College Room 300 B at Western Washington University.

The event is a pre-bee-season introduction to the Outback Bees Project for 2016. Attendees should expect to cover weekly meeting times, basic ground rules, elementary beekeeping essentials and safety issues. A question-and-answer session will follow the discussion.

All students, faculty, staff and community members are welcome to attend.

Hands-on beekeeping experience is offered weekly at The Outback Apiary, which is located in The Outback Farm on the WWU's south campus. The group meets at 1 p.m. on Tuesday and Saturday afternoons during the active bee season, about mid-March through Halloween, weather permitting. Attendees can get free hands-on experience working in hives in a pleasant, garden setting, learning to keep bees alive, healthy and productive. No experience or equipment is necessary.
