All About Bees with Kagen Weeks

Please join us on Tuesday evening January 15 at 7pm in the Library Lecture Hall for a talk by bee enthusiast and bee-giver Kagen Weeks.  Mr. Weeks founded and launched “Hive At Your Home”, a one-man business building and delivering homemade hives – and a couple thousand bees to go with them – around the state and region.
Kagen Weeks is fascinated by bees. He takes great interest in knowing the insects work as a collective and make decisions as a group. “I find it inspiring to see that in my own backyard — a few thousand individuals able to sort stuff out,” Weeks said. He grew up spending summers on the family farm in Pittsfield where his grandfather kept bees. His presentation at the library will touch upon the genetics and anatomy of honey bees, beekeeping tips and techniques, bee diseases, pollination, and local food systems. 
Come to this  program presented by the Friends of the Dover Public Library and learn more about bee culture in support of agriculture.
