Bob Arevalo will share some of his adventures in beekeeping at this session. While watching the movie Ulee’s Gold, he developed an interest in this unique hobby. He took a course at the University of Minnesota, purchased equipment, came home, and ordered honey bees. “It is a fun hobby. I love these incredible little creatures,” Arevalo says. “Everybody should have 2 or 3 hives of bees. They are easier to keep than a dog or a cat.” Join us for a fascinating presentation.
