Live Beekeeping Instruction Demos in Baltimore

from Bill Castro, MSBA 2nd VP

Though exact dates that highly depend on covid, weather and city/state requirements are still being worked out, MSBA 2nd VP Bill Castro will be holding live demos on urban natural beekeeping in Baltimore's Leakin Park this year.

The first sessions will be in late March, and take place every month this growing season. This is Bill's 13th full time season running over 100 colonies in Baltimore and 25th consecutive season managing bees.

Topics will include hive management, swarm retrieval/trapping, making seasonal splits, strategic and humane honey harvesting, and answering questions.

Folks interested can look for updates on the Bee Friendly Apiary website and Facebook page, and Baltimore Beekeepers Facebook page. I can also be emailed at for more information as the details become available.
