From our friends at Burgh Bees:

The Bloomfield Folk and Flower Festival
Saturday, May 11th 11am – 4pm

This is always a fun community event with live music, plant and flower sales, and a large vendor fair. It always draws a good crowd.
Sto-Rox Library Children’s Summer Program
Thursday, June 27th, 1 PM – 3 PM
The library is conducting its Pollinator Week and asked us to give a presentation to the children. The time slot is 1pm – 3pm but a 2 hour presentation is not expected. The observation hive would be appreciated but not necessary.
Apiary Clean Up Day
May 10th 9 AM – 12 PM
American Eagle Outfitters is spending their ‘Day of Giving’ helping us with Spring Cleaning at the Homewood Apiary. Please join us if you can!
May 25th, 11 Am – 2 PM
Join us for our first Open Apiary! These events are free and open to the public. We can always use help getting folks signed in, waivers signed and helping people get into the protective gear. Added knowledge of apiary plants is a huge plus but not necessary
To educate beekeepers and promote beekeeping as a vital part of sustainable agriculture in Pittsburgh and its suburbs.
