Virginia Tech is offering a one-day event for beginning farmers and those interested in homesteading and self-sufficiency skills from 2-7 p.m. on Aug. 23 at Kentland Farm in Montgomery County.
The event includes sessions on farming, ranching and beekeeping, and the organizers have asked the NRVBA to provide speakers for five 30-minute presentations on the basics of beekeeping. The club will also staff and information table with live bees.
Volunteer presenters (individuals or pairs) are needed, as are volunteers to help staff the display and answer questions. Contact NRVBA President Mark Chorba (540-204-6882) to sign up.
