Before beekeeping became intertwined with industrial agriculture, with hives being shipped around the nation and sired by queens from a handful of California producers, the keeping of bees was a unique occupation that entailed a certain connection with nature. In this presentation, Mark will paint a picture of the annual cycle of honey bees in the Willamette Valley, offer suggestions to aspiring beekeepers in each season, and make a case for truly "local" bees that are better adapted to our area.
