Learn About Beehives and the Health of Bees at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust

Jun 30, 2021 01:03PM ● By Shae Marcus

Join local backyard beekeepers Denise and Rob Dietrich at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust at 2 p.m. on July 18 to learn about raising honeybees. Attendees that are not interested in having their own beehives can learn how to make their yard more bee-friendly and also what to do if a swarm of honeybees is sighted.

Denise and Rob live on the other side of Big Timber Creek from the Lands Trust. They have more than 24 hives, two of which are at Old Pine Farm. They have been raising bees for eight years and are very involved in the South Jersey Beekeepers Association. Following their presentation, they will have their own honey for sale.

Attendees are asked to meet at the Willoughby House at the end of Pine Avenue, off Good Intent Road in Blackwood Terrace. Carpooling is recommended. 

Cost: Free. Location: 340 Pine Ave., Deptford. For more information, call Sally Willowbee at 856-889-4160. Visit OldPineFarm.org or Facebook for potential changes and directions.
