Beekeeping 101


Friday, April 13, 12:30 – 2:00 pm

 

The talk by Glen Andresen on the wonder and magic honey bees, hosted by Eastside, North Star and Northeast Villages will be held at the Hollywood Library at 4040 NE Tillamook St .

 

Glen has been keeping bees in his own backyard in Portland since 1992 and in other people’s backyards since 2002. Last year, his city bees produced more than 3,300 pounds of honey. He teaches backyard organic beekeeping classes through Portland Community College, Garden Fever nursery in Northeast Portland, and others. Glen has been a Master Gardener since 1991.

 

Glen Andresen is the host of the long-running hour-long edible gardening show "The Dirt Bag," heard the second Wednesday of each month at 11 a.m. on community radio station KBOO, at 90.7 FM in Portland. Since 1994, he has been Metro/OSU’s lead natural gardening educator. The program offers presentations and information on how to have healthy yards and gardens without the use of pesticides. While Glen has degrees in economics and music, he would rather play with his bees.
