2012 Workshops at DeLaney Community Farm

Once again, the Denver Urban Gardens will host Beekeeper Association meetings at DeLaney Community Farm in Aurora. The beekeepers will meet from 9-11am once a month, May through September.

This year, beekeepers Debbie and Allen Brown will lead the workshops. Last year as an association member, Allen had a hive with a laying worker, so he brought a frame to show the group. It was hands-on, really interesting, and an important thing to know. You won't want to miss out on what they have to share, so be sure to mark your calendars.
