There was some excitement on the farm during last weeks inspection, so this week we're gonna dig in and see if I am a good beekeeper or not. Will they have a new queen in development? Will they be pissed at me? WE'RE GONNA FIND OUT!
Feel free to bring your own beekeeping gear and actively participate in the inspection. I love hosting guest beekeepers of all ages and experiences!
If you can, you should plan to stick around and help out at the farm after the inspection! They got hit pretty hard by Irene and could use all the hands they can get to help clean up and get the farm productive again. Hope to see you there!
P.S. DID I MENTION THAT IT'S FREE!?
It's all going down at the Added Value Red Hook Community Farm, located at 3-49 Halleck St, Brooklyn, 11231, and I'll be starting the inspection at 11AM.
