Field Day – EDUCATIONAL APIARY in Plainfield with member Beau Wright

Plainfield Township Office 22525 W Lockport Street, Plainfield, IL, United States

I am putting a variety of hives at this educational apiary. I will have 1 of my homemade 8 frame insulated langstroth hives, 1 Flowhive, 1 standard langstroth double nuc resource hive, and my homemade insulated 30 frame long lang( I call it my coffin) hive. I am planning on setting up a few hives with some packages. I am going to try to get some bees over there prior to the event (maybe this weekend depending on the weather). I am planning on trying to get the double nuc resource hive going prior to the event and maybe we can do an inspection on it. Also during the event I want to set up the other hives and install bees.

The area the hives are in is very low ground. FYI don't wear footwear you don't want to get muddy.

I also have the waiver that people must sign in order to participate. Also anyone who wants to participate must wear at least a veil.

Thanks

Beau
