September meeting features beekeeping and flower farming
September 18 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
Please note the earlier start time due to shorter days.
Thanks very much to Hank and Denise Sturkie of Mt. View Farm for hosting the September meeting. There is always interest in the art of beekeeping and cutflowers continue to grow in popularity. We’ll do a flower walk and end with a bee talk. In case of bad weather, Hank will talk about bees at the GLC office. Please meet at the GLC office to carpool, there is limited parking and 4 wheel drive is recommended. If you live on the western end of the county, please carpool with friends.
