2.3 Beekeeping Grant for Virginians

Bees and other pollinators are crucial to farming and are part of the process of producing much of the food we eat. Perhaps you have heard the news during the past several years that bee populations have dramatically declined due to a mysterious, incompletely understood condition that causes hives to “collapse” (most of the bees die). In an effort to rebuild the bee population, there is a grant program for those who would like to have beehives. What a fascinating learning experience–and maybe a lifelong hobby! It’s also an opportunity to help farmers and ensure the continuation of our own food supplies! Read more in the website. “Bee sure” to see item 3.6 on a related gardening item on how to make and use a worm compost bin.
