Just three days after the bees arrive at CGCF, we will conduct the first beehive inspection. Participants will be allowed to watch as Jon makes sure the bees have settled into the apiary correctly. Beekeeping is a natural next step in understanding how important knowing where our food comes from and sustaining it safely. Bees also serve as a great indicator of environmental health. If the bees are healthy, we should be too! He will continue to work with anyone interested in apiaries. Also, there is a contest for the person who can come up with the greatest name for our Queen bee. Stop by the farm and if you see Jon, say hello and suggest one! Teacher: Jon Lever,"The Bee Guy", is a special education teacher and part-time beekeeper. He is from Baltimore but lives with his wife Monesha and bulldog Euphie in Adams Morgan. He has always been a garden enthusiast while incorprating plants and animals into his teaching.
