It's a Wrap!
Wrapping your Bee Hives for Winter
Saturday, November 8, 3 – 4:30 pm
11 Needham Rd, Potsdam, NY
Presented by Martin's Needham Road Market and the Local Living Venture.
We look forward to a fun and informative afternoon with our host, decades-long beekeeper Luke Martin.
is an informal opportunity to learn Luke's successful and mindful
technique of wrapping bee hives for the winter, while considering
ways to deal with radiant heat and condensation. Luke uses easily
obtained materials to wrap the hive and trap any radiant heat that may
be available. He will
address the concern for proper circulation to prevent killing
condensation while over-wintering, as it is important that the hive be
allowed to "breathe".
For this unique learning experience, a $17 general public, $10 Bee Group Member, $30 for a couple, $7 student donation is requested to cover overhead expenses and to benefit Local Living Venture workshop creation.
