  1. Hi, I was wondering if this event is open to people who are interested in beekeeping but have no experience in keeping a hive as of yet. Also, I am temporarily living in Chambersburg and am interested in learning more about beekeeping in exchange for my help. I live and work on Fulton Farm at Wilson College as an intern. I would appreciate any opportunities to help and learn. My email is Thanks!
