Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 10:00 am

Curious about what it takes to keep a hive of bees thriving? Want to learn a little about the benefits of beekeeping? Join Scott Herbert of the Worcester County Beekeepers Association for this fun and informative session!

In addition to a slide presentation, Scott will bring beekeeping equipment for attendees to see and an observation hive (if the weather is warm enough). Bring your curiosity and your questions!

Scott Herbert has been a beekeeper for 7 years, currently managing 75 colonies throughout Worcester County. He has completed the coursework for the Cornell Master Beekeeper Certification Program at Cornell University, hoping to complete the exam series this summer! Scott owns and runs Charlton Bee Company, producing queens and nucleus colonies of bees for local beekeepers. He is also an avid woodworker, building/assembling all of the bee equipment he sells.
