In this training we will consider the importance of bees and other pollinators at a time when biological diversity is collapsing at the fastest pace humans have ever experienced. We will learn about what it takes to maintain a bee colony, how to harvest honey and other products of the hive, as well as how this practice can strengthen our local community of pollinators. Guest presenters include K. Ruby of the Institute of Urban Homesteading and Khaled Almaghafi of Oakland’s Queen of Sheba Honey/Bee Healthy Honey Shop – 4th generation Yemeni bee keeper. training will be hosted by Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project at the Tassafaronga Recreation Center in East Oakland.
