Beekeepers Host Presentation
A special presentation by the Southern Vermont Beekeepers Association will take place on Wednesday, March 5, at 7 p.m., at the Mark Skinner Library in Manchester, Vt. featuring local beekeepers, Jack and Sarah Rath, on their trip to Ukraine in the fall of 2013 to attend Apimondia, the 2013 World Beekeeping Federation meeting. They also toured Crimea and visited several beekeepers, a queen breeder and two bee therapy institutions. Crimea is a fascinating place, steeped in history, at the crossroads between Asia and Europe.
SVBA has long been a resource to area beekeepers; those who want to start a hive, those with a few hives and those with commercial operations, providing education, mentoring, presentations and services to our members. Come check out the buzz; newcomers are always welcome. For more information, visit southernvtbeekeepers.org or call Susan Marmer at 802-362-2080.
