Dear Rockwood beekeepers,
I wanted to pass on some information about a beekeeping lecture and workshop that we are sponsoring in March at the Richmond Waldorf School. They are being led by Gunther Hauk who founded Spikenard, the honeybee sanctuary in Floyd, Va.
I appreciate all your group is doing to help honeybees and hope Gunther’s approach to beekeeping will be of interest to some of your members.
Please feel free to let me know if I can answer any questions about the workshop for you.
