Urban Beekeeping

Tuesday, September 19 from 5:30 – 7:00pm at The Manchester Community Library

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Madeline Zeif to talk about urban beekeeping. Urban beekeeping is a rapidly growing phenomenon as cities become increasingly environmentally conscious. Since the legalization of beekeeping in New York City in 2018 the industry has taken off, allowing for open conversations about such things as the importance of pollinators, and urban sustainability in the workplace. Madeline will address common concerns over the honeybee population, the debate over wild bees vs. domesticated ones, the challenges and advantages of beekeeping in close spaces and more. Join us as we dive into the structure of the hive, the basics of beekeeping, and the ever-growing urban beekeeping industry. Registration for this program is $22 per person.
