Beekeeping, with Chris Coy

 Our speaker, Chris Coy, started beekeeping in 2012 to add pollinators into his backyard for improved yields on fruit trees, grapevines, and vegetables on his property. Not only did the honey bees help improve production, but beekeeping opened a fascinating world of how honey bees work, organize their colonies, and affect a third of our food through pollination. With eight hives now in his backyard, he has abundant fruit, vegetables, and honey, and is passionate about educating others about these insects who are a vital part of our food chain.
