UNION, SC - - - Piedmont Physic Garden and the Union County Beekeepers Association invite you to get up close and personal with bees with a July 30 workshop for beginning beekeepers from 10 - noon at the garden on 301 East South Street.

Celena Goings, a journeyman beekeeper, will speak on the effect of pests and pesticides on honeybees; Herschel Pressley, who has kept bees for more than 50 years, will describe how to obtain bees for the hive, including how to capture wild honey bees; and certified beekeepers Jean and Frank Pennas will provide education on the lifecycle of honey bees, their products, and the equipment required for keeping bees.  Attendees will have the opportunity to see an observation hive, beekeeping equipment, and a new invention from New Zealand, the “Flow Hive.”
