I know honeybees for kids isn't the best sounding title but we hope to elevate the learning opportunities for children who visit our gardens by caring for bees here. We are thankful to have a mentor and equipment all ready for us. All we have to do is buy the bees. Everyone here is excited to dive into this age-old journey of beekeeping. One of the greatest ways we can help save the honeybees is by funding communities to care for sustainable colonies.
Sue McKown will be offering a FREEbee Workshop here this weekend to teach Harrisonburg folks about the art of natural beekeeping. This is not industrial beekeeping. As a practice, we are going to treat our bees with the same love, care and hard work that is applied to the land, faith and our communal lives.

What a great surprise I had last week when I found this bit of sage poking out from a bank of snow!!! I harvested it and since it was freeze dried (he he), put it in a jar and it is ready to use.
