April 2010 meeting

April 12, 2010: Importance of Bees and Honey PLUS tasting!
We enjoyed a honey tasting with local beekeeper Rich Riedman. He discussed the importance of bees, buying local honey, health and beauty benefits, and how we can help the bees.

The Ontario-Finger Lakes Beekeepers Association offers a free introductory course in beekeeping.

Rich recommended the film The Last Beekeeper, which follows the lives of three commercial beekeepers (from South Carolina, Montana, and Washington) over the course of a year as they struggle with Colony Collapse Disorder.

A member recommended the children's book The Bee Man, by Laurie Krebs.

We saluted Gabrielle Javier-Cerulli for her leadership over the past year and a half. Thank you, Gabrielle!
