As I was leaving, I stopped at the front desk to thank them and to tell them that I was starting beekeeping as a result of that exhibit they'd had last year. The woman called out the Education Program Coordinator, Brian Sterne. Seems he's a beekeeper, and he has a top bar hive, which is precisely the kind I want to build over the summer. He gave me a lot of good advice on how to craft the top bars.
Beekeepers are very special people, ready to share their knowledge and to encourage newbies in the field.
BEEattitude for Day # 108:
Blessed are the exhibit-makers, for the delight they bring shall filter back to them.
One thing Fran is grateful for right now:
Holtkamp Heating & A/C Inc., the sponsors of “Your House, My House” at GEHC.
