Beekeeper shared insights

Beekeeping has been Birgit deWeerd’s all-consuming passion for 25 years. In 1996, the Bedford resident published a book on the subject, “Let Me Tell You About My Bees.” On Jan. 16, deWeerd was in Bolton at the public library, presenting a panoply of information on the subject, ranging from the life cycles of a hive to the nature of pollen-producing flowers and plants. The event was sponsored by Bolton Local, a conservation group.
