The Garden’s beekeepers will talk about the lifecycle of a colony of bees over the course of a year, and the different roles bees play during their short lives. They will also discuss what it takes to begin keeping bees in a way that aligns with what bees naturally need to be healthy and productive in Houston’s microclimate from season to season, and how this type of beekeeping aligns us, as well, with the local environment. Learn the pros and cons of different types of hives, hear tips on essential gear and tools, find out how to source your bees, and get a list of resources to get you started.
Non-member fee of $25 includes general admission to the Garden. Garden members receive a $15 discount.
