We are thrilled to announce that for our May meeting, Nancy Thorne of the Westmoreland County Beekeepers Association will be hosting us at her home to do a presentation on Beekeeping.
Nancy has been keeping bees for 5 years and has 6 hives. We will learn about how to start beekeeping and the process from start to finish up through harvesting honey. We will also be tasting different varieties of honey with cheeses and breads.
