The Wayside Inn Presents A Year in the Life of a Beehive
Join The Wayside Inn Foundation on Tuesday, May 18,2021 for a new program, “A Year in the Life of a Beehive.” The program will be held online via Zoom at 7:00 pm. The Foundation is delighted to have as guest speaker, Nancy Vona, who will discuss the amazing and complex lives of honeybees and who will answer such questions as what is a honeybee swarm; what does a queen honeybee do all day; how often can one harvest honey; can ingesting honey regularly prevent allergies; and do bees hibernate in the winter? The program will describe how honeybees survive throughout the seasons, the rewards and challenges of beekeeping, the biggest risks honeybees face today, and easy ways to help local pollinators.
Nancy Vona is a mother, writer, beekeeper, and gardener living in Sudbury, Massachusetts. She is the owner of Three Dog Apiary, with hives of Buckfast, Saskatraz, and VSH (Varroa SensitiveHygiene) honeybees. She has been beekeeping since 2011 and is currently studying for her final exams for Cornell University's Master Beekeeping certification. Nancy loves bees and all pollinators. She is currently working on several picture books about honeybees and native bees, and a memoir about beekeeping during the pandemic.
