Al Avitabile Beekeeping Workshop Part 1 Video is Up!

Beekeeping Guru Al Avitabile- Photo Mike Amodeo
The first Beekeeping Workshop  for the Flanders Beekeeping Co-op was held last Saturday.There was soooo much information to take in that we thought we would post videos of the workshop for our fellow co-opers and the public at large.  Jay Foster bravely filmed the swarms of bees excitedly being introduced to their Queen and capturing the ancedotel musings of our infamous guru, Al Avitabile. Thank you Mr. Avitabile, and Dianne Parmalee for initiating the event!
The full length video is below. It is also broken up into 3 segments for easier access to pertinent information.





There are a couple of spaces left for those interested in joining the co-op. Contact Flanders Nature Center for information. 203-263-2214

Queen of the Sun – What are the Bees Telling Us? 

April 26, 6:30 pm |
Of this beautiful, moving, and important film the Seattle Times writes: “…Taggart Siegel circled the globe to interview the world’s most passionate beekeepers, and their testimonials make this an irresistible romance about the essential role that honeybees play in maintaining earth’s fragile ecosystem…a cautionary tale with a hopeful outlook.” Al Avitabile, Emeritus Professor at the Biology Dept. of UCONN, and co-author of “The Beekeeper’s Handbook” will introduce the film, and will be available after the film for a book signing, and to answer questions.
Location: Woodbury Library
Donation: $6 for Flanders’ members and $8, non-members
