MARIN BEE COMPANY
Changing the World, One Bee at a Time
March 8th, April 11th, May 10th, June 7th: 11:00 am- 12:00 noon
Our library workshops will be followed up with this free community series focused on helping beginner backyard beekeepers successfully maintain their hives. We'll meet monthly at Whole Foods in Novato on their beautiful patio garden to provide the community with education, awareness and stewardship as to support Whole Food's Share the Buzz campaign. Our aim is to heighten awareness about the struggling honeybee, Colony Collapse Disorder and the declining bee population though community outreach. We also promote backyard beekeeping as way to actively help the environment by repopulating the dwindling honeybee, a worldwide environmental crisis. For more information, please watch this informative video from Ted Talks featuring Maria Spivak," Why Bees are Disappearing". Or read Time Magazines Article" A World without Bees".
Beekeeping lessons will occur monthly at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm beginning on March 8, 2014. Those who would like a close up look at live bees can follow us over the Homeward Bound of Marin to work inside live beehives. This program continues Whole Foods and Marin Bee Company’s mission to create educational programs through environmental stewardship. Both are committed to demystifying beekeeping so that hobbyists can own and maintain their own beehives, while enjoying the tremendous satisfaction that comes from actively helping the environment and harvesting their own healthy raw honey.
