Unveiling the Buzz: A Dive into the World of Bees
June 20, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join NOFA-RI at Historic Casey Farm in Saunderstown, Rhode Island, for an enlightening one-hour workshop on bees.
Hosted by NOFA RI and facilitated by Cindy Holt, an Eastern Apiculture Society certified Master Beekeeper, this event aims to broaden your perspective beyond honey bees and into the fascinating realm of solitary bees.
Cindy will share her expertise on the diverse bee species native to Rhode Island, how to cultivate a bee-friendly environment that enhances your garden’s productivity and debunk common misconceptions about keeping honey bees.
This workshop will be especially beneficial to farmers who might consider starting their own beehives. Cindy will discuss the challenges and complexities of keeping honey bees and why working with an experienced beekeeper might be a more sustainable approach.
Following the workshop, participants can join a tour of Historic New England’s Casey Farm, a 300-acre organic, historic farm with a commitment to sustainable farming practices. Historic New England is the oldest and largest regional heritage organization in the nation.
