Bee Hive Winter Wrapping

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.

This 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".

Please dress appropriately for the weather as this workshop is outside and will be held rain or shine.

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.
