Don Snoeyink, owner of Thornapple Woodlands in Grand Rapids, will present a hands-on honeybee seminar. Participants will learn about the three types of bees in a hive and their respective roles; understand how bees find nectar, process it into honey and how honey is harvested; learn the nutritious and medicinal qualities of honey; and discover uses for beeswax. He also will answer questions. In addition, participants will view honey bees safely in an observation hive, make a hand-rolled beeswax candle to take home, and taste honey from a beehive.
