CANTON, NY — The monthly gathering of the Bees & Beekeeping Discussion Group will be held on Wednesday, July 28. This casual monthly event is hosted by the Local Living Venture (LLV) on the last Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
All novice to advanced levels of beekeeper are welcome to ask questions and share in the successes and challenges of beekeeping in a relaxed group setting.
The Bee group gatherings are always free to attend, though free will donations are appreciated for workshop creation.
This month will feature discussion on a wide range of topics brought up by the group, but honey harvesting techniques and equipment are likely to be a subject of seasonal interest.
An upcoming Pollinator Protection Program, scheduled for numerous public events in the Fall, also will be discussed briefly by LLV coordinators. Pollinator volunteers are sought by the LLV to bring vital knowledge to the public about how to protect not just bees, but butterflies and many other pollinators as well.

Noble Hospital Guild’s butterfly and pollinators garden.The building is next door to the Best Western and across from the Price Chopper on Rt. 11 in Canton, and will have an orange ‘Local Living Workshop Site’ lawn sign near the door.The Local Living Venture is a community-based organization dedicated to sharing resourceful rural living skills for a capable and healthy community, based in the St. Lawrence River Valley.
