Free beekeeping presentation in Minden
Never underestimate the importance of pollination in the garden and the pollination of a wide range of plants that support a diversity of beneficial insects. Not to mention the added benefit of honey — nature’s nectar. Bill Knight is a local, well established and experienced Beekeeper that is scheduled to give a free beekeeping presentation on Tuesday, February 25, at the CVIC Hall in Minden, 6:00pm. Bill is an excellent presenter with a free-flowing style. If you are contemplating an apiary or bee yard of your own, or if you own honey bees but would like to become more proficient in their care, please plan to attend this event as part of the Agriculture Innovation Forum Series (AIFS).
AIFS is designed to provide practical information and know-how for agricultural producers and small acreage owners to optimize their land use potential and maintain agricultural open space in Carson Valley. It is held the last Tuesday of the month. The Agriculture Innovation Forum Series is intended to be an open dialogue format allowing attendees ample opportunity to ask questions and learn. The Series is held at the CVIC Hall, 1604 Esmeralda Ave., Minden, from 6-8pm. For more information on the February 25 forum on Beekeeping, please contact Steve Lewis, Extension Educator with the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension at 775-782-9960.
