The Bees & the Beekeepers
In 2017 St. Edwin sponsored several parishioners to learn beekeeping. People donated boxes and equipment, and an apiary run by our newly trained beekeepers was created. Our immediate goal is to collect enough honey for our local parish events. Above Tad S., one of our parishioners with beekeeping experience, understands the bees’ behavior and needs no suit (this time).
Some of the parish beekeepers practicing their craft. The jug of sugar water was used the first season to keep the bees fed while we awaited new spring flowers.
The Bee Team is our A Team.
To assist in finding the queen bee, an internationally recognized color code has been developed. The green mark means the queen above was born in 2019.
