Getting Started in Beekeeping - Hardin County

Area gardeners and others with an interest in gardening are invited to attend the summer gardening programs being offered at the Friendship Gardens of Hardin County. This summer the Hardin County OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are sponsoring three educational demonstration programs in the Friendship Gardens located at 960 W. Kohler Street in Kenton, which is behind Harco Industries. Follow the ‘Friendship Gardens of Hardin County’ signs to a parking area off of West Kohler Street. The events are planned to begin at 9:00 am on Saturday mornings and will last about an hour. The first educational garden program is scheduled for Saturday, June 15. The topic will be ‘Getting Started in Beekeeping.’ Learn from area beekeeper Mike Hubbell as he will have an observation hive with a marked queen. He will speak on the importance of pollinator plants, projects, native and alien plants used by bees for nectar and/or pollen sources. Hubbell will bring examples of equipment, tools, and clothing needed to get started in beekeeping. He will also discuss bee products and uses along with diseases and pests that impact bees.
