Get started with beekeeping at MI Ag Ideas to Grow With virtual conference
The MI Ag Ideas to Grow With virtual conference includes a session for anyone considering beekeeping.
Have you wondered if beekeeping is right for you? Have you considered keeping honey bees to produce honey or increase pollination? Honey bees can be 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.
Join the MI Ag Ideas to Grow With virtual conference on Monday, Feb. 27, 2023 at 6 p.m. via Zoom for a live presentation by Ana Heck, apiculture educator at Michigan State University Extension, on how to get started with beekeeping. There is no cost to register, but pre-registration is required.
Michigan is home to many species of bees and other pollinators. 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.
