Have you wondered if beekeeping is right for you? Have you considered keeping honey bees to produce your own, local honey? Honey bees are awe-inspiring, but keeping them healthy takes a lot of learning and hard work. Before you get started, find out what costs, time, and effort are required. Learn what beekeepers do and where they can go for resources and support.

We all benefit from a healthy pollinator population. You don’t need to become a beekeeper to help take care of our bees! This presentation will also cover pollinator diversity, issues that bees are facing, and what people can do to support pollinator health.

This session is eligible for 1 RUP credit (1A, 1B, 1C, 1D or Priv CORE).

The 2024 MI Ag Ideas to Grow With conference will be held virtually, February 19-March 1, 2024.
