‘Bees in Vermont’ Talk
The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association’s Conservation Committee will present the next Walk and Talk series event on October 16, at 6:30, when they host a presentation, ‘Bees in Vermont,’ with Mike Benson, a third-generation Vermont beekeeper from Cuttingsville, Vt. Mike is a member of the Vermont Beekeepers Association and gives educational presentations in schools and community venues around the state.
The Vermont Beekeepers Association represents over 400 beekeepers that raise bees for love and honey. They are as diverse as the 246 towns in Vermont, but are unified in their fascination with and affection for bees. Most beekeepers are hobbyists, but there are some ‘side liners’ who try to make a bit of extra income from their hives, as well as a handful of full-time professionals.
The lecture and presentation will be held at the Gethsemane Episcopal Church hall on Depot Street, next to Crow’s Bakery, in Proctorsville, Vt. Come and see what is involved in making honey, and maybe enjoy some honey-flavored treats. For more information on this event or on the Walk and Talk Series, please call Robin Timko at 802-226-7736.
