Would You Like to be a Beekeeper? Have you ever wondered what is involved in being a beekeeper and working with honeybees? If so, plan to attend the informational meeting, “Would You Like to be a Beekeeper?" on October 23, 7:00 p.m., at the Franklin County Ag Heritage Building, 185 Franklin Farm Lane, Chambersburg. The Franklin County Beekeepers Association is sponsoring this introductory meeting on beekeeping for the general public. In particular, it is for those who may be interested in starting their own hives and learning a little bit more about what is involved. The meeting will include a brief introduction to the honey bee, beekeeping information resources and time requirements for managing hives. A brief overview of tools, equipment, start-up costs, and ordering bee packages will be presented. The meeting is open to anyone interested in learning more about beekeeping. There is no cost to attend and registration is not required. For more information about the meeting or the Franklin County Beekeeper Association, contact Randy King at 328-9256.
