Topics covered will include:
1 - systemic poisons in brief, but that's not all the bees must survive
2 - recent weather events killing bees (April freezes & September floods)
3 - beehive build as a group ... take one home with you in February
4 - suggested plants ... when gardeners want to help the bees
