In 2017 St. Edwin sponsored several
parishioners to learn beekeeping.
People donated boxes and equipment,
and an apiary run by our newly trained
beekeepers was created. Our
immediate goal is to collect enough
honey for our local parish events.
Above Tad S., one of our parishioners
with beekeeping experience,
understands the bees’ behavior and
needs no suit (this time).
The Bee Team is our A Team.
Some of the parish beekeepers practicing
their craft. The jug of sugar water was used
the first season to keep the bees fed while we
awaited new spring flowers.
To assist in finding the queen bee, an
internationally recognized color code has
been developed. The green mark means
the queen above was born in 2019.
