Earth Day celebrates beekeepers

Grandin, Roanok, Beekeeper, Virginia, New River Valley Beekeepers Association, honey bee, BlacksburgJoin the New River Valley Beekeepers Association from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday at the Grandin Court Earth Day celebration in Roanoke. Members Gyorgyi Voros and Sue Hossack will staff an NRVBA information table with live honey bees on display. Other members are encouraged to volunteer and bring their honey and wax products to sell. Contact Gyorgyi for more information.

Time spent educating the public about honey bees and beekeeping counts towards the service requirements for Virginia Master Beekeeper certification.

Combine your trip to the festival with a screening of the new short documentary “Bee People,” at the Grandin Theatre’s Earth Day film festival. Two beekeepers featured in the film will be on hand for discussions.
