Mother Earth News and Friends

Mar 31, 2017

Are you considering keeping bees? The Mother Earth News and Friends podcast producer Robert Riley sits down with Master Beekeepers Becky and Steve Tipton, and Ethnobotanist Dawn Combs, who is a veteran in the realm of "natural beekeeping." These experts share their knowledge and discuss differences to help Robert and other beeginners get up and going with their own colonies. Becky, Steve, and Dawn help prepare you for this upcoming adventure by covering the topics of bee species, swarming, pollinator-friendly plants, when to smoke your bees, tools of the trade, and much more. If you are an experienced beekeeper you may even learn a new technique.

Friday, Sept. 14, at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Pa., in conjunction with the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR. Learn more and reserve your spot today.
