February 20, 2018, 7 to 8:30 pm
Rhythmix Cultural Works, 2513 Blanding Avenue, Alameda

Join us for an introduction to the wonderful world of bees and beekeeping.  We’ll learn about the importance of bees and beekeeping and why the urban food farmer might want to add them to her plot.  Then Lori will provide us with an overview of beekeeping and we’ll taste some Alameda honey.

About our speaker: Lori Slicton lives in Alameda and keeps honeybees both in Alameda and in the Sonora foothills. Through Old Schoolhouse Raw Honey, she makes and sells honey, natural remedies, and other bee-related products.

Here is a list of plants (PDF) that are good for honey bees.
