Robbie will be discussing the basic history of beekeeping, the equipment used,
suitable locations for apiaries, and will give locations where local honey can be
purchased. The discussion will also include the positive and negative aspects of
beekeeping, plants you can place in your yard to attract bees, and potential uses
