The ABC's of bees


Mon, Jul 7th, 2014
Posted in Rushford The Great Outdoors

A free beekeeping class, “The ABC’s of Bees,” will be held Wednesday, July 9, from 5-6 p.m., at Creekside Park in Rushford, Minn., in the small pavilion. The class is part of an ongoing educational and community effort by the Rushford Peterson Valley Farmers’ Market.

Chris Schad, co-founder and President/CEO of The Bee Shed LLC, will lead participants through the short course. It is designed to give an education on honeybees – what they are, what they do and how they do it. The class will cover the types of bees in a colony, what honeybees need, what they produce, and how the general public can help, in addition to the basics of backyard beekeeping.

Schad is a biologist by training, with several peer-reviewed papers published in scientific journals. Several years ago he turned his attention to prairie restoration and other ways to support local pollinators such as honey bees. He now manages bees on his rural Rochester, Minnesota property, as well as other sites within the region.

The Bee Shed (www.thebeeshed.com) provides a series of local, wholesome, healthy and natural products from honeybees, available direct-to-consumer, at several retail locations, and through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs. In addition, The Bee Shed assists with unique and effective fundraising program for non-profit organizations and provides high quality equipment for the budget-conscious hobbyist beekeeper. Like their honey, the majority of The Bee Shed beekeeping woodenware is locally made.

The Rushford Peterson Valley Farmers’ Market runs Wednesdays, May-October, at Creekside Park in Rushford. Market hours are 4-7 p.m. For more information, contact the market at rushfordpetersonvalleymarket@gmail.com or by calling the market manager at (507) 458-2547.
