Learning the ropes: Honey Bees

Today I volunteered to help five local bee hives at Wright-Locke Farm, located in Winchester, MA. šŸ™‚
This was the first time I put on a beekeepers outfit, within a protective gear. This summer, I shall be helping this amazing community farm with Honey bees, goats, sheep, chickens and fruit bearing gardens. šŸ™‚

Also, one of my dear friends plans to have a couple bee hives of her own; in the city of Cambridge, MA. It is legal here to own a beehive on your property. I will be helping her plant flowers which honey bees love and learning the ropes of traditional bee keeping from her as well. šŸ™‚
