This Week at the Bath Freight Shed: Gold Star Honeybees with The Bee Lady, Christy Hemenway. Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Are you as tired of this dreary weather as we are? Have you found yourself gazing at what was once a flower bed and might become one again... if ever Spring were to put its foot down and kick Winter to the curb? 

Yeah, us too. So, let's shake out that welcome mat and invite spring to join us!  

Helping us shake it out this week is our very own local Bee Lady, Christy Hemenway of Gold Star Honeybees. If ever there was something to get us excited about the upcoming growing season, it's knowing that our dear bees will be back on the job, doing what our food chain needs! Thank you bees!

During this Saturdays market morning, Christy will be our guest in the south end Community Room, chatting to all about bees, pollination and more importantly, how to provide a perfect abode for our humming visitors -- her Top Bar Hives! 

Not only does The Bee Lady have a product line but she's written a book, The Thinking Beekeeper - A Guide to Natural Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives. And that's not all! She also offers instructional classes and speaks at events.

One could say, she's as busy as a bee (yes, please groan) and that Gold Star Honeybees is a hive of activity (sorry, can't help myself..)

Don't bee-lieve me? Learn more about Christy's work over on her web site: and then, why not jump over to Like her Facebook Page and see what else she's up to! 

See you Saturday Freight Shed Fans!
