September Club Meeting – Planting for Bees
September 16, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us in September for our General Membership Meeting.
Pre-meeting Question & Answer session will start at 6:00 PM.
At 7:00 pm the club meeting will begin. Our speaker and topic will be “Planting for Bees”. Advanced master gardener Charlotte Ekker Wiggins will review the six major plant families that provide honey bees food and what beekeepers can do to provide their bees with higher nutrition. Charlotte has been gardening ever since she can remember and became a beekeeper 9 years ago. She keeps her Bluebird Gardens Apiary on a one acre limestone hill in Rolla, about an hour and a half south of here. She runs a custom gift business, is the founder of the Rolla Bee Club that turned 5 last month and currently serves as Missouri State Beekeepers Association partnership liaison.
