Once again the Capital City Beekeepers Association will promote “Bee Friendly Frankfort” and sponsor and coordinate a wide range of activities complimenting the annual BlueGrass Beekeepers School held at Kentucky State University on March 9 (www.ksbabeekeeping.org).
The events and activities are intended to serve as an outreach to the broader Frankfort community and attendees of the Beekeeping School and their families. Though planning in not yet complete some of the community based activities will include a student essay contest sponsored by the State Journal, a 2 and 3d art contest hosted by Wilsons Nurseries, kids programs at various merchants including Completely Kentucky, Broadway Clay, Poor Richards Bookstore and Paul Sawyer Library. For foodies, many local restaurants will be offering honey themed meals and treats, Irish Sea Celtic shop will host a tea and honey tasting and Capital Cellars a mead tasting. A Bee Keepers Jam will be held on March 8 and there are plans to hold a “bee-hive” hairdo contest that evening as well. And… the buzz is just starting.
So note the dates on you calendar and keep an eye out for more detail via Capital Living and the many participating organizations.
