Susan R. and I did the Lummis Home Event in Los Angeles on Feb. 4 and represented the Backwards Beekeepers.
Held at the former home of Charles Fletcher Lummis, this outdoor event featured workshops that included food crafting with master preservers, home remedies and botanicals, greywater systems, home brewing, urban livestock keeping, square foot gardening, fruit tree care and pruning, rainwater harvesting, small plant propogation, botany 101 for kids, and of course, backyard beekeeping.
Susan explains how a hive is set up.
There were also arts and crafts tables and more than 30 informational booths. The observation hive was particularly popular with kids and adults alike.
