From Jaya Sahihi ’17:
Did you know that there are two beehives on Wesleyan’s campus? We, Wesleyan Beekeepers, are a freshly-forming group who hope to teach the art of beekeeping to fellow students and inspire an overall awareness and appreciation for honeybees (insects that are integral to the pollination of our food).
We are having our kick-off meeting on Monday, September 8th, at 10pm in the UOC and we want YOU (and whatever form of bee experience you have) to be there!
Date: Tomorrow, September 8th
Place: UOC (190 High Street)
From Tyler Rioff ’14:
Always wanted to learn more about the beautiful and fascinating creatures that support our entire ecosystem? Interested in someday helping to take care of Wesleyan’s very own bees?
You may not be aware that Long Lane now has two hives being prepared for the coming winter. We hope you’ll join us for the first meeting of the Wesleyan Beekeepers to discuss very generally the future directions of this group. Bring your ideas, hopes, and dreams for creating a buzzing bee culture on campus for years to come.
Once we’ve done some talking and aptly themed snacking, we’ll be showing the acclaimed documentary film Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? Hope to see you soon.
Date: Tuesday, November 5
Time: 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Place: 41 Wyllys, Room 110
