All About Honey Bees
and Beekeeping

Those contemplating beekeeping can join Jesse the Beekeeper with East Coast Honey to find out what it takes. Jesse surveys the importance of honey bee pollination to our food supply, how consumers can take personal action to protect honey bees, and explains to aspiring beekeepers various aspects of beekeeping as a hobby and a business. He also touches on causes of Colony Collapse Disorder and what is involved in becoming a beekeeper. Afterward, visit the Garden’s apiary (weather permitting).
