Bee-vangelists Wanted

Do you enjoy talking about bees with total strangers?  If so, we have some great opportunities for you!  In April, the Guild is participating in the Philly Farm & Food Fest and the Philadelphia Science Festival to raise awareness of the importance of honey bees to our food sources and to our environment.

We will provide an observation hive full of bees, bee-related handouts, and other visual aids (honeycomb, bee suit, tools, etc.).  WE NEED YOU to staff the booth and simply chat with people about beekeeping for a 2-hour period or longer if you’re into it!  Anyone who has kept bees for a year or so, will know the answers to the vast majority of questions people have.    PLEASE VOLUNTEER by contacting the appropriate coordinator, below!

April 13 (Sunday) Farm & Food Fest   from 11 am – 4 pm   at Convention Center on Broad St.
