In partnership with the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild, PhillyEarth brought a much needed bee colony to our farm. With the help of our friend and local beekeeper, Susan, we learned the ins and outs of Apiculture. We were trained on how to calm the hive with smoke, how to check for hive health, how to identify worker bees from the queen, and most importantly, how to extract the honey without causing harm to the hive!
