EVENTS

Backyard Beekeeping
Second Sunday of Each Month • 2pm-4pm
Meetings rotates between the Year-Round Locations ~ Hampton • Chesapeake • Virginia Beach

A backyard beehive is the perfect place for our most important pollinator, the honey bee. Join our growing group of gardeners each month to discuss how to keep bees in a top bar beehive. Meetings are held at a different McDonald Garden Center location on the second Sunday of each month. The same seasonal topics will be covered at all three locations, so if you can't make it to one meeting, please try to join us at one of the other locations.

UPCOMING MEETING DATES: February 8 in Hampton • March 8 in Chesapeake • April 12 in Virginia Beach
