Gina Anderson, Purdue University Extension Educator, will talk about why honey bees are popular, the products that honey bees provide for us, and how to care for honey bees. She will also bring beekeeping equipment for the audience to check out. Thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana, Purdue Extension Floyd County has been able to start a bee yard with educational hives. Several programs have been offered where individuals can get up close to a working hive and learn about what it takes to provide for honey bees and reap the benefits of collecting honey.
Gina Anderson has a B.S. in Horticulture Production and Marketing with a minor in Natural Resources and Environmental Science as well as a M.S. in Agriculture Education.
Refreshments will be served. No registration is required. This program takes place in the Library's Strassweg Auditorium.
