The bees in the Permaculture Garden almost made it through the winter, succumbing in February. Beekeepers we consulted advised two hives would give them a greater chance of survival. We are grateful to have a current Woodhall parent who knows the art and science of beekeeping. Edward Fennell, father of Connor Fennel ’18, helped us to obtain a second hive and re-populate the first. He is teaching Mr. Ed Gelzheiser hive management. So far this year the hives are thriving.
