Beekeeping
Bees are a critical part of gardening in El Dorado County – without them we wouldn’t be able to enjoy many of our fruits and vegetables. But bees are under threat of disappearing from our landscape because of the inappropriate use of pesticides. Master Gardener Sharlet Elms will discuss how to raise bees and handle them safely from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Jan. 28.

Location: Building C hearing room, 2850 Fairlane Court, Placerville
