Dr Lawrence DuBose will give a presentation @ the Honey House on the history, life cycle and problems of working with honey bees. Dr. DuBose will take us to visit the main yard beehives after his presentation. Dr. DuBose has been practicing beekeeping since 1933 (it must be the honey) and was voted Beekeeper of the Year in 2015 by the Illinois State Beekeepers Association.
It’s a 2-fer on the 2nd! Master Gardener and club member, Gail Sanders, will also take us for a tour of the flower gardens around the farmhouse. Since she is a volunteer here Gail will be able to give us special insights about these gardens.
