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.
