Anita is a Biologist and MA State Bee Inspector who runs between 30-50 treatment free hives in my apiary. Four years ago she started out as a backyard beekeeper full of enthusiasm and trepidation, with only a single hive on her rooftop. Her passion and quest for beekeeping knowledge led her on an adventure across America that would change her path forever. You can read about her journey since day one here on her beekeeping blog.
Please bring your veils/protective clothing (ticks also abound at this apiary site) and let Sadie know ahead of time if you will be attending by emailing her (space may be limited if there is a lot of interest).
Enter BNC’s grounds from the big gate on Walk Hill street (address is 500 Walk Hill Street). Head straight down the shaded drive and at the first fork (at the clearing just past the 3 brick houses on your left) take a LEFT. Wend your way toward the community garden (which consists of two areas, both on your left) and if you look RIGHT across the meadow you may see several hives (or not, grass & hugelculture may block them). You can park along the road near the brick “shed” with green roof and the yellow building with picnic overhand (which houses really nice clivus multrum composting toilets), or continue around the bend and pull into a space in front of the larger field of garden plots that is the Clark Cooper Community Garden. There is a path across from the brick “shed” that will take you toward the apiary site. Before you get to the grove of trees walk right into the meadow (this is the same meadow that you saw on your right driving in) and keep the tall sumac/grove of trees, composting system, etc on your left, this “path” next to the patch of high bushes curves around and you will find yourself in front of the hives (so you probably want to suit up before entering the meadow). Call Sadie’s cell phone if you get lost: (978) 771-8570.
