Sunday September 13, 2020 - 3pm - The History of Beekeeping in Vermont - Rokeby Museum, Route 7, Ferrisburgh, Vermont
A number of years ago, several literary-minded beekeepers got together to discuss how they might – collectively – write the history of beekeeping in Vermont. Fast forward to 2020, and the book is now available. Ross Conrad is one of the book’s authors. He will give an overview of the history of Vermont beekeeping with a special emphasis on Addison County, the epicenter of beekeeping in the state. Conrad tuned to Rokeby archives in researching this history, and will share how beekeeping has changed over the years in response to economic, cultural and environmental changes.
